You & Me

Raise your hands if you love to get inky! While they're up there, check em' out to see if they're covered/stained with ink. Sometimes I come away from a card looking a bit like a rainbow threw up on me. This card was one of them but it was worth it. 

I wanted to play around with some of the new lovey-dovey type goodies in the shop, so I pulled out the Background Hearts Mixables Stencil by My Favorite Things, paired it with some of their inks, and a custom sentiment using a Lawn Fawn alphabet. 

After taping the stencil over top of my piece of paper, I masked off the hearts carefully so I could get each one a different colour using Razzle Berry, Blu Raspberry, and Grape Jelly inks. For the hearts that I left ink-free, I traced them using a Memento Tuxedo Black marker.  I hand cut a banner from white cardstock and stamped my sentiment using a Lawn Fawn alphabet set. On a scrap piece of white cardstock I inked up two more hearts, cut them out, and scored them in the middle for some dimension. After adhering them to the white banner I covered them in glitter. The banner is popped up with foam tape and the whole thing matted on a purple card base. 

There are so many ways of using that fun stencil! I can't wait to explore the possibilities. Go check it out and have fun with it! 

Thanks for stopping in today and have a GREAT day.
