Hanging Hearts for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

I'm back to show you another card I made with Leonie's Typography collection.

I started with one of the Banners and Frames stamps, which I bent into a curve before inking up with black Archival ink.

I stamped it twice onto a square of Sheena's stamping card with some copier paper behind

then stamped again on the copier paper so I could use it as a mask. I cut along the line and kept both halves.

The bottom half was used to cover underneath the stamped line on my card. I coloured the top with worn lipstick and spiced marmalade Distress Inks

To add some texture to the coloured panel I used a flower from the Fly Free stamp set and 'inked' it with water. I first tried pressing the stamp into some kitchen towel sprayed with water, but this didn't remove much colour and was barely visible.

I got a much better impression when I spritzed the water into the air above the stamp

Once I was finished with the coloured section I used the other half of the copier paper mask to cover it up. I used the frame (straightened this time) to stamp some vertical lines down the card for the hearts to 'hang' from.

I inked up some more white card with worn lipstick DI and die-cut some hearts using Leonie's Lots of Love mixed media dies

I placed the hearts inside 5 different Typography embossing folders and ran them through my Ebosser machine.

After embossing I sanded the hearts lightly with an emery board to highlight the raised patterns

The card is finished off with some Typography letters die-cut from inked card - I cut the 'L' from the  waste
