I'm posting two cards today that I designed for Designs by Ryn . Both cards are created with her CM-F16 Vine Heart. It's a beautiful design, I love how the vine winds into a heart which is fun to colour !
The background for the first card was created by stamping and embossing the heart with green powder (Lettuce by Adirondack). I blended Dusty Concord and Peeled Paint Distress Inks over top. The colours are a little softer 'real' than this photo shows. I used a white gel pen to colour in the vines on a few of the embossed hearts.
The sentiment is from a Kaisercraft Set - Life Sentiments CS763, which I stamped with Memento Grape Jelly Dye Ink. I added ribbon and a gold heart charm to finish it off.
The second card below is a clean and simple style or maybe it has too much colour to be considered 'clean'
The background for the above card was created by using a couple of Tom Bow markers to add colour and then sprayed with water. I used a large flat brush to move the paint around. I sprayed over the paint again to create water marks and then added purple glimmer mist. (no salt this time)
I stamped the heart on Vellum paper and embossed with gold. I turned it over onto a foam mat and embossed the vines with a stylus (dry embossing). The embossed areas turn white.
I cut the heart out and attached it with tape specifically for vellum so you can't see it through the paper. I added a dark purple mat before attaching to the folded white card.
Thanks for your visit & enjoy your day !Shirley
