Last week was one of the busiest weeks ever, and I totally forgot that today was the 25th and the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. Before I left for Dining Room Ministry this morning I got this card started, and finished it when I returned. I combined one of the techniques from the Online Card Class "Stenciled" Day 1 with the blog hop inspiration. The very first day of class featured several techniques for using stencils, and I have tried almost none of them. It's going to be a great class.
Here's the inspiration piece for the Papertrey Blog hop. The charge was to create a card using just a variety of pinks. Neutrals like white, black and silver are allowed.
I first cut a mask with my Spellbinders Nested hearts, and used it to apply both Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks over the Hero Arts "Tweed Pattern" stencil on my heart which I then die cut.
Next I cut the next size heart from Raspberry Fizz and layered them. I tried a variety of card bases and didn't like any of them. So finally I pulled out my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Creme de Rouge. For once I got the spray just the way I wanted it.
The sentiment combines the stamped word "love" from Rustic Branches and a die cut "you" from Wonderful Words. A few scattered pink and silver sequins and it was done. The first of the valentines completed!
