Red and Black

Color Hues #34-Red and Black

It doesn’t happen often but every once in a while I have an idea for one card that works with more than one challenge. This is one of those times. Using a black card base and some scrap red CS with an older die from Memory Box called Homespun hearts I cut two of the heart pieces. Then I scored diagonally across the black CS using a tent shaped design and the debossed side. First one I tried slipped so the lines went wonky and I’m finding scoring diagonally isn’t easy even with a diagonal board. I placed one of the die cut pieces and once happy with the look I glued it down. I cut the other die cut into bits and added the larger heart on top of the glued piece for more dimension and then added Nuvo Crystal Glaze on top. Gives it a nice shine and a bit more dimension. Some of the other hearts were added randomly. Using a set from Divinity Designs that has various small stamps suitable for Valentine’s Day I took two and stamped with Versamark onto a scrap piece of black which I then heat embossed in White. Didn’t dare to stamp directly to the card as I was worried I would mess it up. Once I added the sentiment I also added a few white flat back pearls to finish the card.

    1. Thanks Judy. The camera is merciless as it picks up anything that can’t be seen by the naked eye and I notice some glue spots that I would prefer not to see.
