Love you Tons!

Hello everyone,  I'm back today with a more subtle Valentine's day card. 

I used the "Love you Ton's" mini stamp set from Lawn Fawn, which is simply adorable.  I stamped out the little elephants onto the text paper that comes in the Yours Truly 6x6 paper pad with Memento onyx black.  After I die cut them out,  I coloured the outline with a grey copic marker to hightlight the images.

For the background I stamped the Lawn Fawn Starry backdrops versa mark ink and heat set it with white embossing powder.  I used watercolour shimmer paints that I have had for a long time in my stash but any inks, watercolour paints, distress inks or ink daubers mixed with perfect pearls will work for this technique and I did that on watercolour paper.

I used the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles to cut out the other papers and I popped up the little heart papers with foam tape and glued the others flat to an A2 size card base in white card stock.  I heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder on vellum and used my fingers to curl up the flag ends.  To finish off the card I used some white thread and sequins.

Don't forget to stop by the shop to see the new items that are coming in.

Thanks for stopping by!  See you again soon.
