I loved the simplicity of Joanne Wardle's valentine card and needed to have a go myself.
I admire the minimalism of her style and this is so far from anything in my life that I set myself the challenge.
My style in most things is why skimp when you can chuck everything including the kitchen sink at it!
I chose a square, linen effect card base and stamped Paperartsy lady from Vintage ink and the dog ID07 in Frayed burlap distress ink. I messed up her hair with a watery wash.
Next I stamped Darcy's beautiful scattering of hearts in Frayed burlap and the sentiment like Joanne's from Hot Picks in archival black.
I would have liked to stamp the splatter but don't have it in my collection yet.
I painted the hearts, cheeks and sentiment with Victorian Velvet distress ink and a little Crushed olive on the stems.
The sparkly heart is there to cover a mark from black ink when I stamped the words….typical me, Mrs Messy.
Never mind, Mr Messy will think that it's ok.
Thanks for looking.
