You Melt My Heart
The new biweekly challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday is starting today and there are choices! You may use the sketch, the inspirational word or both. I elected to use the word, which is "Melt". I thought of ice cubes, snowmen, ice cream and candles but settled on the melting heart when I found the sentiment.
I saw a heart photo I liked so I started with a heart die then drew the melted portion to create a template of what I saw. The template allowed me to draw the melting heart on red cardstock. I fussy cut the heart, mounted it onto white cardstock then fussy cut the white mat. I also used a Copic marker to add a little reflective quality to the heart but it's not very noticeable. This was adhered to a panel of black cardstock, which was adhered to a white card base. The sentiment was free clipart that I downloaded, resized, printed and die cut. This was adhered using foam tape for dimension. The silver metallic "gems" were added.
The Design Team at TSOT #415 invites you to join the challenges at our blog. A new biweekly sketch challenge begins each Tuesday and runs for two weeks.
