CAS Challenge at Splitcoast this week. Our challenge....use postage...be it stamps, die cuts etc. And this card is also for The Paper Players Challenge 127 - Love Is In the Air.
Although I can't get it to photograph properly, there is a faint watermark image on the black card base. I used a TCW heart template and sponged on Versamark and then dried it with my heat gun. It's really subtle but adds some oomph to the back ground.
Next, I use a Spellbinder's die to cut the postage stamp and while it was still in the die, used the same template and sponged the hearts in three shades of red ink. Then the background was sponged with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Next, I stamped the little lips in the darkest of the red inks. The sentiment was stamped in black ink and then for a little pizzazz...I used my Gelly Roll pen to add some shine to the lips so it looks like lip gloss. Fun hmm?
The postage stamp die cut has been popped up on dimensionals when added to the card base.
Here's what I used:
Paper: SU! Basic Black and Georgia Pacific white
Ink: Versamark, Distress Inks in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Fired Brick, as well as Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday Smooch and Bo Bunny Smoochable
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro, Spellbinders Postage Stamps, TCW Dina's Mini Spilled Hearts, sponges, dimensionals, Gelly Roll Clear Star
Have a fabulous week everyone!
