For my creation, I used a card base of Highland Heather. For the card front, I scrunched a piece of Shimmery White cardstock for background texture. This was layered with Vellum. On Shimmery White cardstock, I brushed a blended watercolour wash of Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Blackberry Bliss. Once dry, I cut a filigree heart from it using a retired die.


On a label of Basic Black card, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings. Under the label, I used a few small loops of Gold thread. The card was finished off with sequins.

Thank you for popping in to have a look at my creation. Don’t forget to pop over to Colour INKspiration to take part in #CI95 too.
