Decided to try another CASology challenge--this time the word is Blue. I also wanted to play along with A Blog Named Hero to use an old stamp since I have many old Hero Arts stamps--this solid heart being one of the oldest. I don't make many 1 layer cards & maybe it helped that I really wasn't thinking about it this time. My sister's favorite color is blue, so I knew I wanted to make her Valentine. I used the kissing technique by inking the heart in Memento Nautical Blue (covered the solid stamp easily without putting down a layer of Watermark ink!), pressing it onto the Classic Fabric Design & then onto the card that I had already scored. "Love" is from another old HA set that has 4 little word stamps & I used the same ink. Finished it with a single tiny gem. I love how this came out, as in real life the heart looks textured & the blue is a gorgeous, rich shade I didn't capture well in the picture. Think I'll make some more in different colors. Thanks for coming by & leaving me a comment.
Time to get ready for the championship football games--yes, I'm a fan, not just hubby! I grew up going to sporting events from a young age with my dad who was a radio sportscaster, so guess it's in my blood. Good thing I can watch it in my living room as my cold is in full force & I look terrible!
