Happy weekend, folks! Shirley here with a slightly grungy anniversary card for you. February being the month of love, we're seeing plenty of hearts, pinks, reds - but rather than a valentine's card, I thought I'd make an anniversary card.
I started by colouring a piece of mixed media card with Barn Door Distress Paint. Once that had dried, I applied Brushed Pewter Distress Paint to some bubble wrap and used it as a stamp onto the panel. I used the Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts Small Stitched Rectangles to trim the panel.
The 'happy' (diecut from glitter foam) and 'anniversary' are from the Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut set.
The red Distress Paint hadn't covered fully, leaving some of the paper texture showing, but I think that adds to the grunginess :)
The heart is made from Tim Holtz Grungepaper which had been sponged with Fired Brick Distress Ink then embossed to give it texture, and heat-set with clear embossing powder. I attached it to the red panel with a heart-shaped brad which I found in my stash.
On a tent-fold white card, I 'painted' some Brushed Pewter marks with a credit card, added some more marks to the red panel, then adhered the panel to the card.
I hope I've given you some ideas for Valentine's or anniversary cards. See you soon!
