Love-ly


When I was painting some chipboard hearts pink the other day, they left a fabulous grungy negative on the scrap paper.  So I painted some more on card panels so that I could use the negative image.  This is version two - version one is below, with the sentiment stamped in black.  As soon as Less Is More's new challenge came in, I knew I wanted to make a version with a grey sentiment, so here it is!

PINK AND GREY

I'm also entering this into JUGS where the word is Love:

So here's the original version.  


The paint is deeper on this one (I added white to the paint for the top card to soften it against the grey sentiment).  

Fancy trying out this technique?  Feel free to CASE this card and enter your version into the CASE playground at STAMPlorations.  And have a look at our new CASEplorations game while you're there.  You could CASE one of those cards (or indeed any card from the STAMPlorations Inspiration team) during February and be in with the chance of a prize.  If you use STAMPlorations stamps in your creation, you can enter it into the never-ending Anything Goes challenge for more chances to win.

  4. So creative and so resourceful! Don't you just love it when ideas like this fall into our laps! Both cards are awesome! A nice soft combo with the pink and grey and a bold contrast with the black & pink.

  9. So beyond lovely! This is why you're my hero - you use every bit of scrip and scrap, even if it's a left over negative!
