In my heartPosted: January 24, 2018 | Author: Heather | Filed under: Tree heart, Triple Banner | Tags: Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints, Penny Black creative dies, Penny Black stamps, WOW embossing powders |4 Comments
This stamp is called ‘tree-heart’ but I always think of it as a family tree. After all what better to have on a family tree but a whole bunch of hearts? I stamped the tree in versamark and embossed with clear powder on hot pressed watercolor paper. Next I painted water over the top section of panel and added pink and blue watercolour paints. Keeping it loose I painted a heart shape over tree with both pink and blue. I filled in the heart leaves with more intense pink and blue paint then painted diluted pink over base area.
I grabbed a scrap of watercolour paper, painted diluted blue over it and stamped a sentiment from ‘happy hearts’ in versafine majestic blue ink. I die cut a banner to contain the sentiment and painted shadows on the ends of banner with blue paint.
To finish I attached the banner to the tree panel with very low profile adhesive dots and matted the panel in blue cardstock before attaching to a white cardbase.
This heart tree is a beautiful stamp Heather and the pretty pinks and blues look so pretty, and love the way you have coloured the die cut banner to x
Sorry Heather it posted before I was ready. I was trying to say I love the way you coloured the die cut banner to match. x
This is a very pretty card Heather. I love the colours you have used especially the places where the pinks and blues have mingled.
Beautiful card, love your work!
