Love You

Hi everyone.  Created this quick card using a watercoloured background that I made during the Craft Retreat I was at in May.  It's mixed media paper, sprayed with starch and then reinkers dropped on top.  A piece of cling wrap was placed over top and scrunched up ... all left to dry overnight.

I love the subtle design it created on the piece.  I die-cut my card front and the piece of watercoloured card with the heart of flowers die.  The coloured pieces were inlaid to create a one layer card.  I added some glossy accents over the small dots in the design to add a bit of shine.  The sentiment was stamped in black to finish.

I'm entering two challenges at the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges at Splitcoaststampers.  You must be a Fan Club member to play along.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Well done piecing all those teeny tiny bits back into the heart! The glossy accents look great with the textured effect paper inlay. :)

What a gorgeous die and background, Loll! The shine on the dots really add to this and your wonderful photography shows it so clearly. What a perfect job you did on that inlay. Think I just saw another die I must have!

Beautiful card, Loll. I love the colorful background that you used for incrustation. Great technique, but I do not quite understand how you did it ;-( I like shiny dots, like drops of water.
Hugs,
