Lavinia Stamps "Large Heart" Anniversary Card

Here's an anniversary card I've made using goodie by Lavinia Stamps. 

I started with a piece of white card measuring four and a half inches square, laying the Lavinia "Replenish" stencil over the top and applying "Pink Peony" and "Violet" Ranger Archival Ink through the stencil.  Around the edge of the card I used a blending brush with "Dusty Concorde" Distress Oxide Ink.

In the middle of the card, I stamped the Lavinia "Large Heart" in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  I then stamped the heart again on a piece of white card, then coated the stamped image in Wow! Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.

I coloured the heart on the white piece of card using "Fuchsia" Derwent Inktense pencil, applied with a paint brush.  Once dry, I cut out the heart close to the stamped edge.  I then inked the cut edge of the heart using Versafine Clair " Morning Mist" grey ink then put the heart to one side.

Returning to the piece of card with the stencilled background and the stamped heart in the middle, I then used the Lavinia "Texture 4" stamp with Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink to stamp the stone detail , ensuring it extended past the edge of the heart stamp. I then painted the stone texture pattern, using "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide ink.

I added wet glue to the back of the heart and stuck it into postion over the stamped heart in the middle of the card.  I then used the "With Love" sentiment from the Lavinia "Heartfelt Verse" sentiment set, stamped in the bottom right hand corner.  Finally, I added some touches of silver glitter pen to areas of the card and some dots of Ranger White "Enamel Accents".
