The Love We Give Away Mixed Media Card


Hello!!!  I hope you are doing well.  Today I have a fun card to share with you.  

I cut a stencil from heavy cardstock using the digital cut file, Hearts Background.  I'll use this "cardstock" stencil as much as I can and then I'll cut it up to use in projects.  Fun!!!


Onto a piece of watercolor paper cut to 4 1/4" x 6" I added Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil.  After removing the stencil from the watercolor paper I scraped all excess paste off the cardstock stencil and then just left it to dry.


After allowing the paste to dry completely on my watercolor panel, I added color by dripping on Bubblegum Pink Dylusions Ink Spray and then spraying with water tipping my paper to allow the color to run both up and down and also using my finger to dab color around.  Later I also splattered Bubblegum Pink (no water added) over the panel.


I die cut the heart, Calligraphic Elements 1, from white cardstock.  I made a cut along the right inside edge of the heart so I could pass my stamped vellum piece through the heart.


I then embossed the heart using embossing ink and Mixed Media Powder, Punch.


Love, from the Baby Love set, was also cut from white cardstock and then embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder.


I also embossed the edges of the next layer with the Queen's Gold powder.


I attached the watercolor panel to the Queen's Gold embossed panel.  The quote, The love we give away, was stamped onto vellum with Archival Ink Jet Black, dried, and the vellum torn as shown.  I put the vellum piece through the heart as shown, wrapped the ends of the vellum strip to the back and taped them down.  I added glue under some of the heart to help hold things in place.


Love was glued on as shown.  The panels were attached to a folded pink card.  Nuvo Glitter Drops, Honey Gold, were added as shown. 


I hope you like today's card!!!  It was really fun and easy to make.  If you have time, leave me a comment.  Thanks for following along!!!
