I finally got to play one of the weekly sketch challenges over at Splitcoaststampers. This one was this weeks challenge, SC267. These challenges are fun to do!
I thought this layout would be great for some hearts and what better time then now to make a Valentine card. I was trying to go for a vintage feel for this one. I don't know if I got it or not, but I do like how it turned out. I started off with kraft, chocolate chip, ruby red, and very vanilla card stock. I used the stamp sets Friends 24-7 and Vintage Labels (a new FREE set from Sale-a-bration, ask me how you can get it). I used ruby red, old olive, and chocolate chip classic inks. For the punches I used the Curly Label punch, the Heart to Heart punch, the Eyelet Boarder punch, and the Modern Label punch. I also used the Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! Background 1 texture plates to add an element of embossing to the ruby red card stock behind the main image. As for the hearts, I stamped the flower image and colored them in with the Stampin' Pastels. Then I used the color spritzer tool with markers that matched the inks I used. I also added Stampin' Dimensionals to make the hearts pop.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
