Here's the card I made for my sweetie on Valentine's Day and I thought I would post it to enter the Quietfire Designs Queen of Hearts challenge too. I used my Quietfire Designs butterfly stamp from the Papillon sheet and stamped it repeatedly with two colours of versamagic ink (Oasis Green and Aegean Blue) and silver encore ink. Then I heat set it with a dry iron, whomped with my anti-static bag and stamped the valentine sentiment (Paper Inspirations). I also stamped one red butterfly with some red Palette ink (Moulin Rouge). There is a little heart at the end, from an A Muse sheet of crystal stickers, which I coloured red with a copic. There got to be some smudging from the iron (I didn't use a piece of paper between the iron and the project - bad girl! Lesson learned the hard way there) so I had to stamp some background, so I used a mosaic tile stamp (Judikins) and some light distress ink. The panel is matted on some red metallic paper and a sage shadow card base. I don't know if this is too feminine or too Christmassy for DH. Oh well, that's what I get for leaving it till the last minute - no time for do-overs! On the plus side, I realize how much I like this layout - very quick and easy. I could see it working for lots of purposes, with lots of options for changing up the colour scheme. Paper Inspirations has a bunch of sentiment stamps like this too for many occasions (but I only have this one - so far!). Still, any vertical message would do, I would think.
Thanks for stopping by!
