You & Me


Valentines are so much fun to make & you’ll need to get them in the mail before you know it! For this card I decided to go with more of a vintage style by inking & distressing edges.  I started by pulling a panel of watercolor paper through Wet Cement ink spritzed with water on an acrylic block.  I dried it with my heat gun & then repeated the process with some Soft Pool ink.

Jan a2z 2

The beautiful Hero Arts heart was stamped 4 times in Pale Tomato overlapping the points in the middle of the panel.  I sponged more ink around the edges & distressed them with my scissors.  I added a bit of Stickles for some sparkle.  The sentiment was stamped in Wet Cement, die cut into a circle, sponged with the inks & again distressed with scissors.  The panel was attached to a card sponged with Wet Cement & Soft Pool.  The sentiment was matted with another die cut circle inked in Wet Cement before mounting it to the center with foam tape.  “Big Hugs” is another sentiment in the set & would work great to make a card for a friend.  Both stamps are new to me. Why not grab some of your new stamps or try a new technique & join our January challenge?  You can use my discount code, GRETA15, to get 15% off a minimum $25 purchase in the a2z store.  The sentiment is from a great set on sale for only $8.
