Greetings Paper and Such Friends!! I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying a restful Sunday! Today I'm bringing you a creation using the newly released Tenderhearted set. I've also used the Deer Dad set for my interior sentiment. Just a great combination!
needed a birthday card so I started with Tenderhearted, minus her
teardrop. To achieve this, I used my tiny teardrop shaped Momento ink
pad to ink the entire image keeping the ink away from the tear on her
face. I could have inked the entire image and then gone in with a
cotton swab and wiped the ink away but I worried about leaving any extra
ink residue therefore causing a smudge on her face. So I carefully
inked the entire image slowly. And when I stamped it came out perfect.
No smudge, no ink where I didn't want it. Just right!
I added a lot of stitching for added
visual interest, some hand rolled felt flowers, a few square brads and
three perfectly placed pearls adding just enough but not too much
interior uses the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Deer Dad set along
with a bit of stitching and more scraps to pull in the color palette
from the card front. I truly love this set, if for no other reason than
the wonderful ability to mix and match the sentiments...especially for
those hard to create masculine cards.
