Basic Grey Challenge - Hearts


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

Challenge 22 - Hearts

As today is a very special day, we would like you to get all loved up in your creations and show us some hearts, it can be any size and any quantity of hearts you wish, and also not forgetting to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation.


This is quite a busy card for me but just went with the flow... I have coloured this super cute image with copic markers, I have gone over the colours with the colourless blender to create softer more muted tones to coordinate with the patterned papers! After cutting with a nesties die I have gone over the whole image with distress inks!

The flourishes are similar to a previous creation... I have stamped directly onto the dp and cut out, hand shaped and have raised on 3d foam. The little hearts are die cut and I have embellished them with a glitter marker so they sparkle just a little. The sentiment has been stamped onto a shape die cut from kraft card and inked edges, as has the heart button. There's really a lot of hearts on this card... the background paper, the pockets, the button, the sticker trim, the glitter hearts, and a little heart swirled in the bottom corner!
