stamps: valentine love, soft swirls from stampin up!
inks: archival (jet black, aquamarine) ink pads, tim holtz worn lipstick, barn door) ink pads plus the worn lipstick distress pen
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock, 4x6" card blank
dies: heart set #2 & big shot from sizzix
I stamped the large swirl background in black, then inked the entire surface pink, adding emphasis to the hearts using the distress pens from tim holtz. I placed a sentiment stamped in black onto a banner I cut out, which I inked in blue along with the card blank. I die cut some hearts, colouring them red with the distress ink to fade the colour up for a more dynamic effect. finally I layered the pieces onto the card, taking inspiration for the layout from the seize the sketch challenge. I think the bold swirls and colours really make a statement for valentines day!!
