Have a heart

The challenge this week in the Crafty Secrets member forum over at Splitcoaststampers is to "have a heart". I started off with the little heart from the French Mail set stamped in to the banner triangles and built from there. The heart frame was a last minute addition after the card was "finished" but not looking quite complete somehow!

The wording is pulled from the same stamp I used to stamp the base card, I just snipped out the individual words, with"childhood" in red and the rest in Espresso.

A change of pace from the clean and simple projects I seem to have been doing of late!

Stamps:
Artsy Banners and French Mail (Clear Art Stamps by Crafty Secrets)

Paper:
Cryogen White
Deark red
Homemade Image and Journal booklet (Crafty Secrets)

Ink:
Adirondack dye ink by Ranger (Espresso)
Versafine by Tsukineko (Satin Red)
Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Antique Linen)

Other:
Sewing machine and thread
Chipboard heart frame (Crafty Secrets)
Rub n Buff by Amaco (Gold Leaf)
Copic marker (to dull down the part of the picture outside the frame)


Thanks for stopping by!
