Today is the start of the second week of the Frilly and Funkie challenge. Our host is the lovely Pamellia and she has chosen Be my Valen-twine, so all you have to do is make something for Valentine's Day but you must include some twine.
This gave me the perfect opportunity to make my card for my other half ! I started by covering some white card with book paper that's been painted with Clear Gesso. I then gathered some Fresco Finish paints in various brown shades and used some Post-it Notes to mask off the card into squares. I dabbed the paint onto the card and dried it slightly before wiping it back with a baby wipe. I then did some stamping using the Wendy Vecchi A to Z Background, Dots and Dashes and Basket Weave stamps using Potting Soil Archival ink.
I used some of the Wallflower paper and tore it around the edges and used Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. The large stamped heart is a Wendy Vecchi stamp from the Love to Make Art set and the little hearts are die cut and the embossed using Red Geranium embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Wendy Vecchi Say it with Art set. The little bird is die cut from card covered with book paper and I've added my twine across the centre and also added some to a little tag.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog to check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects !
