Its been a long time...

Hello.  Its been too long since my last post.  I do have some completed projects to show you, but they're still under wraps.  In the meantime, here is a simple card using the beautiful Claritystamp Garden Heart.
Inspired by Barbara Gray's New Design Club project with the All you need is Love  Heart stamp, I created a brayered background with Worn Lipstick distress ink and Lettuce Adirondack.  I did try a couple using the trick with the cling film, but wasn't happy with the results I achieved.  In the end I used some masking fluid, created some speckles by flicking ink with a toothbrush and added extra shading with my stencil brushes and then a blending tool. 
I stamped the heart in Slate Adirondack, then added some touches of colour with promarkers.  I matted it onto some grey card, then a bit of ribbon and a little charm is all that's needed to complete this simple card.
Hopefully it won't be as long until the next time.  Xxx

    Sadly my Mum's not around any more, but I always make her a Mothers Day card to stand by her photo - this idea would be perfect in her favourite colours. Thank you for sharing this :-) x
