Hearts


Hi everyone and hope you've all had a good week. I've made a card for Cute Card Thursday where this week the challenge is 'hearts'. I'm hoping this will also be ok for Friday Sketchers which is the sketch I followed but had to modify a bit at the bottom as I had a disaster with ink all over my ribbon band, the extra hearts cover it up nicely! The cute Wilbur puppy image is a download from Pollycraft and is marker coloured, matted on red bazzil card and mounted on dimension tape. The hearts are cut with a nestability die and I embossed the larger one with a the winter village CB embossing folder then added the doodlebug candy dots. Put some rub on hearts on the smaller heart and filled them in with red stickles. Stamped the sentiment on to another nestie heart and made another heart with stickles. The gingham background paper is cut to fit the sketch I followed and layered over the brown cardstock base, I did some doodling and added the ribbon and bow. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

I love this Chris, the red gingham and the gingerbread colour work so well together. Well done for tackling this sketch, I was a little dubious as it's quite tricky but you've done a superb job!
Note to myself, when a sketch seems a little difficult check out Sketching Stamper for oodles of inspiration, hee hee! xx
