Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop Take 2 - Hearts and a Retro Sketch


Here is my second card for the blog hop at Papertrey Ink today. For this card I used the sketch at Retro Sketches this week.

For this card I created another heart accent using a die cut heart, liquid glass (I think this product is similar to Crystal Effects) and alcohol ink. I created a Bokeh effect panel for the center of my card - for this I randomly sponged pink and grey ink onto my CS and then with the tiny heart stamp from Boutique Borders: Love, I randomly stamped first, second and third generation hearts using a white pigment ink. I then die cut my panel with a square die and die cut two small hearts out of the bottom right corner. The tags were die cut from CS and vellum and topped off with some ribbons and fibers tied together. I really like how this turned out.

Supplies:
Stamps - Boutique Borders: Love (PTI)
Dies - Heart Prints, Tag Sale #5, (PTI), Classic Square (Spellbinders)
Paper - Stampers Select White (PTI), Vellum (CTMH), coaster
Ink - Versafine Black Onyx, Clear EP, Ranger Alcohol Ink, Liquid Glass (CTMH), Watermelon ink, Grey Wool ink, White Daisy Pigment ink (CTMH)
Other - ribbons and fibers

  3. Great color choices for your Bokeh hearts, Connie! I should have stamped over my overlapped hearts with white. Guess that's what's do fun about these hops is getting ideas from others. Love your card!
