Vine Heart & Lace

Hello Everyone !  I hope you are doing well and enjoying the time of year.     

I have a card using beautiful Designs by Ryn's stamps that could be used for Valentines Day.

Design by Ryn's stamps used:    Climbing Vine, Vine Heart, Flower Lace 1.

I created the background with red & blue watercolour paints (wet on wet on watercolour paper).  Once dry I embossed the climing vine with black.   Next I stamped the Flower Lace with Seedless Preserves and Salty Ocean Distress Inks.    I used bleach to take colour away from the vines.

I stamped Love (from Chocolate Baroque's - Artistic Expressions) with Black Soot Distress Ink.  The heart was also embossed with black and I used Seedless Preserves to paint in colour along with a blue Tombow.    The heart was cut out and adhered as shown.

If you have a chance, please stop by Miranda's and Eileen's Blogs, both with lots of inspiration,  who are also on Ryn's Design Team.

Thanks for your visit and enjoy the Season !

Amazing colours & very effective with the bleaching technique. The thread of deep purple colour in the background is lovely the way it leads into the heart.
