Harlequin & Hearts

Another one for the Modsquad challenge of using multiple images. http://modsquadchallenge.com/pinkmain_circus/

The harlequin pattern came from a lovely stencil that a great and treasured friend made for me recently. I had such fun using it with my new ink brushes as they work great with stencils. The larger hearts down the side came from another stencil (can’t remember where I got this one). The tiny hearts and sentiment are from the same Simon Says set mentioned in my other post today. I used Distress Oxides for the inks. Inked the edges of the sentiment panel to match the tiny red stripe separating the hearts and diamond shapes and I bent the sentiment strip so it would pop up in the middle. Used dimensionals to hold it in place but I glued down the ends so it stays bent. It still needed something so I added Nuvo Crystal glaze to all the hearts and was then satisfied with the look. This is my first Valentine of the year now to the rest.

    1. Thanks Jan – I had a lot of fun making both these cards and could finally concentrate on them as my hubby’s show is done until next year.


    1. Initially when creating the Heart card I was just fooling around using the stencil and trying to use the hack strip you gave me. I didn’t plan it at all and just let it evolve. Then I realized I had more white space than I wanted and decided to turn it into a Valentine card. That diamond stencil is actually very versatile and I will be using it a lot more soon.


    1. You are the best Gayle. So pleased you like it. Am doing some others this week now that I have a bit more time.
