Whew…okay, here’s a better Valentine’s Day card for my husband! Still had to add a little pink in there for the holiday but it’s considerably more masculine than my first try!
I used the fun Love ‘N Breakfast set from Lawn Fawn to stamp the sentiment and shakers in Versafine Onyx Black and heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. Then I took a heart die from the Memory Box Cherub Hearts, placed it around the shakers, and traced it to get the heart shape. I followed Kristina Werner’s tutorial for using frisket to create a mask for the watercolored hearts. I also painted frisket on the shakers so that the watercolor wouldn’t seep onto the shakers. Once the frisket was dried I wet the inside of the heart and painted it with peerless watercolors. After the heart was dry I rubbed off all of the frisket. Then I used a little clear wink of stella glitter on the salt shaker and the silver wink of stella glitter on the pepper shaker. I also added little flecks of “pepper” with a .3 copic multi-liner and colored the shaker lids with a copic marker. After that dried I added a thin layer of glossy accents to the glass of the shaker.
I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle dies for the background piece as well as the black frame. While everything was drying I added acetate and foam mounting tape to the black frame and then filled it! I wanted to keep it a little more masculine so I used mainly Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins in 4mm and 6mm, Avery Elle’s Midnight Blend, and a pinch of Ellen Hutson’s Iridescent Melon sequins! I also tossed in some coarse glitter by Martha Stewart for a little extra “salt.” To finish the card I adhered the shaker to a top folding card stock base of Simon Says Stamp black card stock.
Thanks for visiting and Happy Valentine’s Day!
