It Must Be Love

Hello fellow crafters! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Thursday!  Yesterday I spent the day in the studio, first making some fun backgrounds with Ken Oliver Colorburst and then I tried out the new Tim Holtz  Ranger Distress Resist Spray!  This product is so addictive.  From these backgrounds I created a card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: It Must Be Love! 

For the background I sprayed the Distress Resist Spray through a My Favorite Things stencil (Graduated Hearts) and then sprayed several colors of Distress Spray Stain over top.  To add additional dimension I used a few more stencils with Distress Ink to add layers to the background. The additional layers, though subtle, really make this background pop.

For the focal image I used Tim Holtz Valentine blueprint stamps, stamped with Versafine black and clear heat embossed. I wanted to be sure to get a dark image over the resist background.  The "14" portion of the stamp was then stamped again and watercolored with Distress Markers.

  I am also entering this project into the Funky Junkie Boutique's Frilly and Funkie Challenge. A few embellishments were added, including the LOVE ticket- (as the Frilly and Funky Challenge requires the word LOVE appear in the project!

Come join in on the fun for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge this week!
Embrace Imperfection!
