Hi friends! I'm back with another card using the limited time free digi I designed for Verve. The boys have been home sick all week from school (actually between sickness and snow days I think they've only attended a total of 6 days all month) and yesterday I needed a mommy break really badly. So I let them both play iPad and snuck into my studio!
I cut a sheet of white cardstock down to 4.25 x 5.5" pieces and prepped them all together. Each one was swiped with heavy gesso, then I added Faber Castell whipped spackle to each one with a star stencil. I let this dry, then sprinkled on some Lindys Stamp Gang Magical powders and spritzed with water. I dried this layer, then added some distress inks in citron and peacock feathers and ground espresso. When needed I wiped ink away with a baby wipe, until I was happy with the background.
The sentiment is printed from the free limited time Love From Me digital set and I cut it with a pierced square die. Next I colored the heart in rainbow colors with Copic markers, sponged with a bit of ground espresso and batted on black. A bit of rose ribbon is my only accent. I finished off with a black mat and some distressed edges all around. And now I have a few extra backgrounds to work into cards later! I can't wait to see what they become..
Hope you are having an excellent week. If you use the digi, be sure to link me up over on the Verve Blog for a chance to win some Verve!

I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years.
