Mixed media Valentine card

  It's been a while since i posted on my blog :)
Here's a mixed media card i made

I did this for my guest designer post over at ICR where the challenge was to use any row or column from the tic tac toe board with the twist of using a mandala..

I challenged myself to use all the elements in the board :)

Am really sorry that i don't have any pictures of the making.. I'll just give a word description below.. Pls read on if you are interested :)

I began by heat embossing the bg by repeatedly stamping the two designs alternately.. This is from the WRMK filigree stamp set.. I always try to expand tbe use of stamps..
I then smooshed distress inks dusty concord & worn lipstick (emboss resist technique)
I also added some memnto inks (lilac posies, grape jelly, rose pink) over that.. These are dye inks & they relatively move less when compared to distress inks.. So u end up with lots of textures..

I stamped the sentiment (generously sent to me by Varshitha from varnas creations) with versamark ink on a heart vellum die cut which again is a gift from a dear crafty Sathya & heat embossed with platinum embossing powder..
Added some wooden hearts & a ribbon bow.. to finish off i prepped a pink card base & did some stencilling with white pigment ink for added interest & stuck the panel with foam tape:)

I did another card following the same steps on request from a friend.. Am glad she liked it :)

Hope you liked it. Do lemme know your comments.. They mean a lot to me.. Thanks for your time..
Create. Have fun.
