52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Design Team sample for "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" #415 "Love Me Do"

It is time for a new challenge theme on the "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog".  Challenge #415 is "Love Me Do".

For the base of my card, I brayered three shades of Distress Ink onto the white card, graduating the colours from light to dark using "Spun Sugar", "Worn Lipstick" and "Picked Raspberry" shades of ink.  I then used a fan brush to splatter water droplets onto the surface, mopping up with a piece of kitchen roll, this creates a lovely mottled look and a little more interest to the background rather than just colour.

For all the stamping, I used stamps from three Visible Image stamp sets.  I started with the grid called "Fibonacci", stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.

Using Versafine Clair "Charming Pink" ink, I stamped the heart, part of the "Don't Judge" stamp set.  I then stamped the same heart on a piece of patterned paper with the word definition of "Love".  I then coloured that stamped heart using "Picked Raspberry" Distress Oxide Ink and cut around the shape, adhering it over the heart that I had stamped on the grid.

Using the word "love" from the "Peace, Love and Hope" set, I stamped the word over the heart and grid using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I decided to grunge up the edge by using the fragmented edge of a Visible Image Butterfly, repeatedly stamped in "Nocturne".  I then inked the very edge of the card, mounting it onto black card and then onto a white card blank.
