First I cut a panel of watercolour cardstock using my NEW Stitched Rectangles from Simon...wanted these for so long and managed to snag them at 30% off on Black Friday...score!!
I then stamped different sizes of solid hearts from the Tons of Hearts stamp set in Distress Inks. I should mention I did a little practice run at this...
After I stamped the hearts I spritzed the paper with plain water, which created this pretty cool effect!!
I thought that in a few places the hearts seemed to lose their shape, so I decided to stamp the outline shape in the same colour.
Now, of course I thought they were too defined, lol!! So I took a wet paintbrush and pounced it over the line stamps.
I then misted the entire panel, lightly, with Perfect Pearls and water to give it a subtle shimmer. Next, I used the Thanks Scallop Border Die from Simon.
I thought it looked a bit plain, as I was layering this piece on Ivory cardstock. So I die cut the Thanks die out of some Green Apple cardstock, and inlaid the letters..
I used the Many Thanks stamp set from Mama Elephant to finish off the sentiment, foam mounted to my ivory card base and placed three pink hearts below.
Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!!
Until next time....Stay Crafty!!
