My first card is based on my friend Tracey's card for the current Muse challenge. Here's her card:
I took my cues from the sponged background, the bear plus heart, the layout and the white on black sentiment. Here's my version:
Rather than a two-colour background, I used just blue on my main panel, then used a heart stencil and a barely damp cloth to lift some of the colour through the stencil. My little bear is embossed with sparkle embossing powder and watercoloured.
With a love theme, at least a bit of red, and an ARTplorations stencil, I'm also adding this to this month's STAMPlorations challenge, Paint It Red.
My next card is inspired by wanting to justify my purchase of a 12"x12" valentine-themed paper pad. 😆 In my defence, it was $4 at Dollarama (thanks, snarky sister Barb for the bargain alert!) and the glitter and foil sheets alone practically make it worth getting. Here's my first card using some of it:
I went with a full postal theme, cutting the patterned paper with a postage stamp border die and adding a little stamped and paper-pieced love note as the focal point, popped up on a white heart.
Crazy to say, this is my third post today! My reminder card for the current Naughty or Nice challenge is here, and my post for today's new Seize the Birthday challenge here.
