Hello friends! We had a snowy weekend in Colorado, so it was a perfect time to play with paper. I love those snowy days when I don't have to go anywhere or do anything.
Today, I am using the Valentine Train stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh along with a couple of their stencils to make this fun little shaker card.
The heart background was stenciled with Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Ink along with the Half Heart Stencils. This is a two part stencil, for the first layer, I lightly inked the first half of the hearts, then went heavy on the second layer. I speckled the whole thing with watered down ink.
For the second background layer, I used Mustard Seed Distressed Oxide along with the Valentine Words Stencil. I had originally inked it on white paper, but it was too harsh, so when the letters had dried completely, I went back in using the ink left in my blending brush to add color to the area that was going to be seen through the heart window. I also inked some paper to use as the background for the sentiments.
To cut out the window for the shaker element, I used the one of the large hearts from the Stitched Hearts Die. I used foam tape to make a well for the Valentine Hearts Clay Confetti. You can watch my YouTube video for a better description.
The coloring is down with Copic markers in the following colors:
Blues: B00, B12, B24
Reds: R14, R27, R39
Pinks: R81, R83, R85
Yellows: Y11, Y15, Y26
Grays: C1, C2, C3, C5, C7
Once my little train and other piece were colored, I cut them out and then glued them to the card.
I am really pleased with this card. I love the heart background, I think is just packs a huge punch.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are well and staying warm!
