Valentine’s Day 2023

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing this years Valentine’s Day card with you all!

I started my project by stamping this image called “Le Baiser Vole” van Little Miss Muffet onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface Paper using a juicy black ink and heat embossing directly afterwards, using a clear embossing powder.

Now I can colour the image using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in combination with my water brush. I’m using the following marker colours: Light Brown, Sand, Deep Vermillion, Mocha Brown, Ever Green and Dark Green. After the colouring is done and dry I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen and I fussy cut the image leaving a small border.

Time to work on my background panel: for this I die cut a rectangle panel two sizes smaller than my card base. Onto this panel I stamped my sentiment (Clearly Besotted “Sweet Little Sentiments” stamp set) using a black ink.

I placed my stencil of choice (TCW791s) over the panel I applied some Spectrum Noir Water-Reactive ink in “Green Topaz” over the stencil using a stencil brush.

Time to put my card together: I die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from matching yellow card stock and adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered onto my creme coloured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. And to finish the card I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut image on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that is it for today’s card project! I wish you a creative day!
