Love is in the air

Hello again everyone,

and welcome back today for my second card. When I made my card for this month’s posts I realized a little too late that this would be my only day before Valentine’s. By this time I had already done the coffee card – but this second card is love related:

I know, in color it might not be what you usually think of when you think of love – but I liked the soft turqoise with the white and black since it makes the image pop.

The image is from the Steampunk V695 stamp set. I stamped it on the coloring paper by Vildastamps using black ink, then used some sparkling embossing powder on the text to highlight it a bit and then added some clear embossig powder all over the image. It now looks a bit like an old photo. I then cut a rectangle about the size of the image out of a sheet of designer’s paper with a heart print and tore and rolled up the edges of the “frame” a bit, adding some cheesecloth here and there. The image is glued to the designer’s paper using 3D tape for some depth. I also added a few flowers and pearls/a pearls string inside the frame.

Around the edges of the designer’s paper I stamped the Grunge Swirl V540 nearly all around to highlight the paper and the edges a bit more.

And onto the heartshaped tag I stamped the clock from the Coggwheelcorner with Clocks V711 stamp set. It would have looked too plain without them on it and I wanted to repeat some of the vintage touch of the image again. A few tiny pearls looked good here as well.

The rest of the card got decorated with more die cuts like the gear circle, the hot air balloon, the flying heart and the clock.

See you all again next month – and have a lovely time!

Hugs, Kathrin
