I've made this card for this month's challenge at Naughty or Nice. I generally like to make a card specifically for that challenge and that alone, but I'm sure the lovely ladies there will forgive me for entering this one into several challenges so that I can stick the pink ink and heart stamp at the back of a drawer until this time next year!
OK, let's get on and get this out of the way.....
Well, it's got hearts on it hasn't it???
The heart stamp is a very old magazine freebie, probably getting on for 10 years old. I stamped it randomly over the card to make a background. Now normally for random stamping I would do it freehand rather than using the Misti, but the Brilliance Radiant orchid ink I was using is very pale and an almost-solid image link this really needs to be stamped twice over, so it had to be the Misti. Instead of moving the stamp around, I moved the piece of card, popping a scrap of clear acetate over the stamping while I lined it up each time to avoid having to clean and dry the stamp every time I moved things around. Stamping the image first on the background grid paper also helped me to line up the images that I stamped over the edge.
When the ink was dry, I used Memento ink to stamp the gloriously unromantic sentiment from So Suzy stamps over the background, then edged it all with more pink (shudder) and stuck it to the base card.
I am sharing this with
Naughty or Nice - All Loved Up (naughty, of course)
Just Add Ink - Romance
Retro Rubber - Love, Love, Love - inspired by the bold black sentiment on the pink and white background
Creative With Stamps - Heart
House of Cards - Valentine Background and/or colours
