Ewe have my heart Valentine card - cutsie


This is my last Valentine card this year, a cutsie one this time, and quite an easy one to produce.




I started by stamping a small piece of card with the roses all over background stamp and then also stamped the sheep with the heart from the Ewe are the best stamp set and also a sentiment from that same stamp set.

Next I ink blended a background with spun sugar and squeezed lemonade distress inks onto Strathmore Bristol smooth water colour paper. In my opinion this is the best card for distress blending, it is so smooth and effortless!

I coloured in the sheep and the rose background with Zig real brush clean colour markers (a gift to myself for Christmas seen my channel is doing so well!). Not a lot of colour, and nothing fancy.  I fussy cut out the sheep and made the sentiment into a banner, I also cut a heart shape out of the rose background with a heart die




To put the card together by sticking the distress inked card panel down with double-sided tape, put some foam tape on the back of the heart, sheep and sentiment banner, and put them all onto the top third of the card.  I feel this is the most pleasing to the eye, instead of slap bang in the middle of the card.




A few clear sparkling sequins and the card was complete.
