Thinking of you

Hi, BRI friends!

It's Dana here. I can't believe it is already the last day of January! Time flies too fast... With saying good bye to this month, I have a lovely card to share with you today. Here is what I came up with. (Listed supplies are in the bottom of post.)

To start, I stamped cupids from Pretty Pink Posh Cupid Friends stamp set with Altenew Permanent Black Crisp Ink and colored them copic markers. I applied Nuvo Ebony Black and Morning Dew to their eyes and heart arrows. I also added sparkles to their wings using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen Clear Overlay. I then fussy cut them using scissors.

Before getting to background, I die cut scalloped heart from white card stock using Pretty Pink Posh Love Shaker Dies. I then started to blend background using Distress Oxide inks and Mini Blending Tool. From bottom to top, I used Candied Apple, Abandoned Coral and Antique Linen.

I spritzed water and let it dried. I then splattered white acrylic paint with water using paint brush again over the background. I added more white dots using Signo white gel pen, too.

Next, I stenciled my distressed background. First, I placed heart die cut on the center and traced its inner line lightly with pencil. I then fixed background panel and MFT Radiating Rays Stencil on my craft mat using washi tape and sponged Distress Oxide Ink, Wild Honey, Antique Linen and Abandoned Coral. Then, I erased pencil line and glued heart die cut as shown using glue pen and tape.

To finish, I stamped sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh Thoughtful Greetings Stamp Set using Versafine Onyx Black and mounted background panel on A2 sized white card base.

Hope you enjoyed this card. Thank you so much for stopping by!
