A "Penfully" Short Project


This was a stamped image I had from last year and since it's almost the end of the Valentine season for this year it seemed appropriate to give it a card!! I am going to be guessing a little on how I did what.

1. The image, Valentine's Stamps by Impression-Obsession was stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth cardstock 80lb.

2. It was mounted on Stardream Fairway text weight paper that had been embossed with Cuttlebug Textile Texture folder. One edge was punched with Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch and then every other hole was punched with Fiskars 1/4" Heart Punch.

3. That was mounted on Stardream Chiara Rose Quartz text weight paper.

4. Finally It was painted with Twinkling H2O Solar Gold, various Gelly Roll Stardust Pens. and Gelly Roll Glaze Pens. While parts of the Gelly Roll Glaze pens were wet DecoArt Glamour Dust Crystal glitter was added for highlights. The heart punched areas had Gelly Roll Pink Glaze added and then glitter too while wet. A little Ice Stickles Crystal Ice was added here and there.

5. The last step was to tie buttons I've had forever with Krenik Gold #16 Tapestry Braid cord and then mount them on the corners with medium glue dots.

A whole lotta pen action. Thank you to my friend for letting me post this from her computer. As Deb at Paper, Ink, Scissors and Stamps would say 'Easy Peasy'. Thanks for stopping by 'the blog' to stop and share.
