Splattered Heart

Challenge #211 – Paint Splatters

A close friend made me a jigsaw stencil and I tried to use it to make a heart. This was some time ago and I wasn’t sure I liked the result but hung onto it to see if I might use it somehow. At the moment I’m making a few cards for the local hospital to say thanks to some of the staff so took another look at it. Considering it fits the current challenge I decided to add to it and make a card. I framed it with a leftover negative piece and then added it to the purple card front. I did add a few more paint splatters first as well as 3 extra hearts. Stamped the sentiment from an Altenew set already on my desk added a few gems and its ready to go. Isn’t there some kind of symbolism for a purple heart? I can’t remember what it is.

  1. I tried to use the stencil wet, over the inks as I’ve seen on tutorials but it didn’t work as well as I hoped. That said I prefer to find a use for the less successful attempts so I saved it and months later I made this.


  2. Thanks Gayle. I was checking and I’ve made 44 cards this April. Quite a few are thank you cards so I shall be delivering a package to the local hospital to cheer up the troops a little bit.


  3. This is so pretty! I like the soft colors, your splatter, and the puzzle pieces in the heart. So creative! Thanks for sharing with us at Inkspirational!

  4. Purple heart is for U.S. soldiers wounded or killed in the line of duty. This is a beautiful card. I really like the puzzle stencil. Those paint splatters are a beautiful touch.

  5. Oh, I knew it stood for something, just couldn’t remember what. Thanks for telling me. Without our Bonnie there wouldn’t be a puzzle stencil. I have to remember not to say i want something because her generous heart goes ahead to create it.
