Distress Ink Anniversary Card

Our friends celebrate their anniversary in ten days, so I made this card for them.

Using a glass mat, I started by creating a background of two shades of Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet adding the inks to the glass mat and then spritzing with water.  I then placed a piece of white card on top of the puddle of colour and drifted it across the surface till all the card was covered in colour.  I then used my heat gun to dry it off.

Once dry, using dies, I cut two hearts from the coloured paper.  One was solid and one was filigree.  I also used a Stampin' Up die from their "Sunshine Wishes" set to cut the word love from the coloured paper.  I then cut another solid heart in white card and glued the filigree heart to it.

On a clean piece of card, I used the same two shades of Distress Inks to splatter colour across the surface of the card, making sure I splattered in the same direction.  This provides a kind of diagonal look.  I used my heat gun to dry the surface. Once dry, I cut the piece of card to size and glued it onto a card blank.

I positioned and glues the love sentiment into place and then played with the positioning of the two hearts.  I first stuck the coloured heart and then using foam pads, stuck the filigree heart into position.  This gives a little dimension to the card.
