Hello again my lovelies
A few weeks back, I posted this card here.
Well as I was clearing up through my offcuts, I came across the blue heart cut from this design. Too good to throw away, I filed it and promptly forgot about it. Until now. So I figured I ought to make good use of it.
As you can see, I grabbed the same stencil but instead of blue, I inked over it with Khaki, using a new tool. Tim Holtz's mini ink blending tool.
I know it's created for his new mini inks (of which I have the original size pads and they still have plenty of ink in 'em, so I'm not tempted for the moment). But their circular design makes them a better applicator than the rectangular ones. You don't get those hard edges as you're dabbing the ink over the stencil.
Anyhoo, with my Khaki design, I overlaid the blue heart, trying as best I could to line the pattern up. I then added a paper bow from a die I recently purchased and stamped the sentiment, in black, onto Kraft card.
And there you have it. It's a bit quirky to have a pastel blue heart in a design and not red or pink but maybe it can be used to send to a guy. Blue and brown are a perfect combo for guys anyway.
