My Valentine Card
My Valentine card, this weeks assignment for Hobby Alternatief came by coincidence, when I see techniques on the internet I always give them a go and mostly I have no clue what to do with all these trial runs, so I keep them all in a binder and every once in a while when I need or want a unique background I pick one from them.
Do you guys keep your trail runs too?
Where do you keep them? do you have a binder too, or do you keep them in a box or drawer?
I used glossy photo paper for the background and I started with stamping 3 colours random on an acrylic block, then I sprayed some rubbing alcohol the ink and waited for the colours to mix a bit. I pressed the block with the ink facing down on the photo paper. You don’t need to keep the block down for long because the ink is dry very quickly.
Tip! When you start with the lightest colour you don’t have to worry much that the ink pads contaminate each other.
I stamped the sentiment and the lines with the hearts with Onyx Black Versafine inkt and cut out a heart. I used a soft green base card and a peach coloured pearl paper as a layering mat. I added some fun foam behind the top layer to give it some extra dimension.
As final touch for my Valentine card I added a few Nuvo Drops coordinating one of the colours I used for the top layer. below are some more photo’s of my card and a photo of part of the materials I used.
I have a list of the materials I used at my HA Blog, It is written in dutch with more details in there for when you want to know more about the materials I used for my Valentine card and all the measurements. To translate it to english or any other language you can use “Google Translate”
