MMM Challenge #35 - Romance (Love Notes)
This vintage-inspired card was created for the Make My Monday Challenge #35. For the month of February, the challenge is Romance. For this week, the specific challenge is Love Notes. My goal was to create a card that shows romance without specifically being for Valentine's Day. I began by creating miniature postcards by stamping a Postcard header from the Ephemeral Backgrounds plate by Artistic Outpost (AO) on small pieces of card stock. The script from the French Flight plate, also by AO, was stamped with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I bundled the finished postcards with Baker's Twine and added a German Scrap Rose and an Ideaology TH pen nib. The beautiful woman from the AO Gatsby plate is stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink. The background and the woman were colored with PanPastels. The hand-torn heart was painted with Ranger Picket Fence paint. The doily, image, postcard bundle and ribbon were heavily distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Finishing touches include pearls, a metal sentiment and vintage buttons with more bits of Baker's Twine.
