I wanted to share another Valentine’s/Love themed card.  This one uses two different background stamps and a floral heart shaped image, all from Impression Obsession.

For the background I stamped two of IO’s Cover a Card stamps with Barn Door Distress Ink on white cardstock.  The top section used the Cover-a-Card Rose Lace (CC087) and the bottom section used the Cover-a-Card Thick & Thin (CC008).  These were layered on black and pink and added to the card front.

The heart image is the Ladybug Vine Heart (D6337).  I stamped it in black on white cs and then colored a piece with the Barn Door Distress ink and stamped a second time on this.  I colored the stem and leaves with a black copic.  Then I fussy cut the little flowers from the second image, shaped them a little, and layered them on the image to give some dimension.  I did the same for the little ladybug.  I used a glitter pen on the flower centers and the ladybug spots.  I have to admit that my copic did a drip on this so I simply cut out a few extra flowers and covered it up.  We have to be creative when mistakes happen.

I really love how well these background stamps work – made the background look like designer paper.

Thanks for stopping by.
