So for the challenge this is the card I've made.
The main image and the heart are stamps that I actually won from my friend Sheila who was having a sort out and did a drawer on her blog (which is excellent so make sure you check it out!). I stamped the images in black Memento ink then mounted the main image onto white card. The heart is actually part of a larger stamp, but I just wanted to use this part of it. I also stamped it in black Memento ink and then lightly shaded it around the edge with a pink Pro Marker. I then mounted it onto my corrugated card, which I had to make myself as I didn't have any. The pink paper is Basic Grey and the swirls are a Crafty Individuals stamp and are stamped in Versafine Smokey Grey and the word is stamped in black Stazon. I cut the bracket using my Cricut machine and added a pearl.
I had run out of the grey Basic Grey paper I wanted to use for the background so I used my favourite technique at the moment. I inked some white card using Adirondack Slate ink then using my sanding block, dragged it across the surface. I then masked off the centre of the card and stamped the swirls with Versamark and rubbed chalk over it so they showed more as a watermark than a definite print.
I really enjoyed making this card, you should have seen my hands when I'd finished though...lol... I feel alot less stressed than when I walked in from work after nearly 2 hours on the road. It normally only takes me 50 minutes to drive home but there was an accident on the M1 and guess who was stuck in it ! I think I've just got time for some blog hopping before bed.
Thanks for looking.
