Love is... @ The Artistic Stamper

Hi folks and welcome to my post for this weeks challenge over @ The Artistic Stamper. This week's theme is 'red'.

Here is my creation...

I cut a piece of 350gsm white card to 7" x 7" and used Distress Oxide Inks - Candied Apple, Abandoned Coral and Fired Brick to ink the background. I applied the inks with ink blending brushes to have a nice covered area of colour. I then went around the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink.

I used the Mini Background #1 stamp set with the 3 colours of red Distress Oxide to add some patterns to the background.

I tore 3 squares from the white card just bigger than the heart stamp, then inked the the same way as the background.

I then stamped the heart on to the three torn squares using black VersaFine ink and adhered them to the background.

I used the Decay Alphabet - lower case to stamp the words directly on to the background.

To finish, I mounted the card on to a piece of 7.5" x 7.5" black card.

Thanks for popping along today, 
toodles for now...
