BIG CARDS – 4 of Hearts

1 Comment

The family returns, as did my mail server (finally) but t’internet is sluggish at best.  With luck it will return to full strength come Wednesday and the new month, then my dedicated broadband line will be up and running by the 8th so I will hope that signals an end to some of the issues I’ve been having.

I don’t always manage it, but I like when I am able to decorate my BIG CARDS in a way that is…significant, I guess is the best word.  For this one I first masked off the paper into four using masking tape.  I then added colour, with shades of pink Distress Ink.

I laid over a floral mask and added Barn Door, to keep with the RED theme of the Hearts.

Removing the tape, I used paper to mask all but the white cross-hairs and stamped with my favourite Visible Image stamp – lovely numbers strip.

all that remained was to trim it and enhance the 4s in the number strip with a bottle cap and black ink.

Done!

I might have smudged some black DI around the colour patches, which may have given it a bit more depth – I may still do, if I think I can do it without messing up the lines.  It would have been best to do it before the number stamping.

Now, with the family back from Womad, there is a TON of laundry to do and so far, a sunny day.  The perfect combo {ha ha}
