Love This

Our assignment on the Color My Heart design team was BLACK & WHITE with an accent of any color.  I  tried...I really tried, but in the end I couldn't get away from the classic dash of red. Well, Tulip to be exact.  I also stretched by adding some neutral accents, but the rules allow it.


I stamplifted this idea from Buttons and Bling, one of the blogs I visit for inspiration.  However, mine has a very different feel and uses a hodgepodge of CTMH products.
  • Art Philosophy Cricut cuts: heart (from retired Roxy paper, edges sponged with Tulip), tag, and square with notched corners.
  • Stamps from It's Your Day August 2012 promotional set: striped background on tag, LOVE THIS sentiment (edges sponged with black to deepen color).
  • Stamp from Frame It Up: square outline with notched corners
  • The crochet flower, wood button, white embroidery floss, corrugated arrow, and hemp are current accessories, but all are from different sets.  And I'm pretty sure some of them are retiring at the end of the month.
  • Tulip ribbon is from some promotional kit I got a while back and can't recall.
  • Liquid Glass to adhere everything that isn't paper.
This card also works for the The Dynamic Duos: Red & Black with Valentine Theme.

Usually I shy away from bold, graphic designs (mostly because I'm not confident in my ability to pull them off), but I am downright tickled pink at how this came out.  Well, tickled Tulip to be exact.

Until next time,
Becca

  1. I LOVE it so very much! The alternating slanted lines on the tag are great! So cool how you inked the edges of the arrow for a deeper color--I have to remember that one! Super job!
