|Hello Sweet Friends,How are you? I am happy to bring you two cards that are being featured on The Penny Black Blog today. The card on the right is the more simple version of my first card using this brushstroke background stamp from Penny Black. For the card on the left I stamped the "Hearts All Over" with StazOn Teal Blue on white card-stock. I added more color to the hearts by coloring them with Copic markers.|
|Five coats of Glossy Accents we applied to four of the hearts (after coloring all of the hearts). You must wait for each coat to dry completely before adding the next layer so plan ahead :) |
When you are satisfied with your hearts dimension add a final layer of Crackle Accents.
I hope you get a chance to try this. The dimension is so cool with the multi layers.
|The background sentiment is from this transparent set & was stamped with this ink, then embossed with Clear Embossing powder. (The idea was for the words on the background card stock to be shinny like the hearts on the front.)|
|Using a spellbinder circle I die cut a hole on scrap paper that fit my card base. Stamp on top of the open area with this ink centering one of the hearts in the open area. After the ink dries color the center heart and the area around the heart. Apply Crackle Accents to the heart and let dry. (On this card I skipped the multi layers so it was super fast to create.) Don't forget to stamp your sentiment with the teal ink.|
|I was tempted to rub the hearts with some red ink to stain the cracks but, didn't want to make them to prominent. I hope you are enjoying seeing two cards on each post and I say it all the time but, I mean it each time too. Thanks so much for your visit. Hugs, Kathy|
