Love and Lace


I made this card for the Hero Arts Love and Lace challenge, it ends I hope today (are the USA behind or ahead of us?). I stamped the large image in white ink and embossed it onto black card, coloured it with Prismacolor pencils which I haven't picked up for a long time so it was a joy to use them. One of the wonderful things about these pastel pencils is that they colour over any other colour card. I wrote Love Grows with a white pencil and went over some of the lines to make them whiter and added a bit of chalk mess to make it look more chalkboard like. I stamped the craft blank along the bottom with a heart bloom stamp, I will check the name, and the top of the background is stamped with a dots flourish stamp from a clear set, all stamps are Hero Arts. The background is also coloured with Prismacolor pencils. I mounted the main image on a panel of green, and added a border in red punched with a MS punch, and after adding some black lace this was adhered to the card blank. A few of the hearts punched out of the border are scattered around.
