I wanted to play with the technique is used in this card, something I saw Jennifer McGuire do with inks, Perfect Pearls and and embossing folder. I played with this technique in the spring but simply did rectangles in the centre of my card but I wanted to play with something different.
MFT heart out of printer paper and using the piece of paper without the heart as a mask. I used a Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brush and a few shades of pinks and purples from Catherine Pooler to create a heart on a white card panel. While the ink was still a little damp and blend-able (and before I removed my stencil), I brushed on some of the white Perfect Pearls with a soft brush and then burnished it all on with a soft cloth. Once it was all dry, I sent the panel through my Big Shot with an embossing folder.
At this point, I left my card to sit for a while cuz I just didn't know what I wanted to do. Literally, a few days later, I put the card back in front of me and added a black pen line around the heart to make it stand out more. I layered the panel to the front of a card and stamped my sentiment from MFT on a piece of white cardstock with black VersaFine ink and trimmed it up to create the banner and I attached it to the front of my card with some Lawn Fawn glue.
While this card took my days to complete, it was really a quick and easy card.... it just took time for my brain to figure out what I wanted to do!
