Hi Everyone! This is Holly with a valentine made sweet by the beautiful sentiment stamps from the new Valentine's Day/Love 2013 stamp set.
The designer paper used for the front panel was sponged along the edges with several different colours of Distress Inks chosen to match the subtle colours in the designer paper.
Happy Valentine's Day and I Love You were stamped using Jet Black Archival Ink
The heart was watercoloured with distress ink then hand-cut, leaving a narrow white edge. Spellbinders Hexagon was used to cut out the HVD sentiment, then it was sponged with distress ink around the edges.
The leaves were cut with the rose leaf die from Spellbinders Foliage set, then sponged with distress inks. While still damp, a stylus was drawn along the vein lines to form a more dimensional leaf shape.
After attaching the front panel to the base card, the hexagon piece was glued down. The heart and leaf stem were glued together and some leavers were cut from the stem and reassembled behind the top of the heart. This piece was glued down overlapping the edge of the hexagon.
The final addition was a spritz of shimmer over the heart and dots of super sparkle along the lacey strip of the designer paper.
This new stamp set is fantastic and I hope you're enjoying the various ways you're seeing it being used. Maybe inspiring you to use them too?
Thank you for looking today!
