Love Hearts

It is time for the new challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog.  Jenny is our hostess this time and is calling it Love is All Around Us.  

She describes it this way:

With Valentines Day approaching it's time to share a little love. Create something vintage or shabby chic featuring hearts. Here's a few ideas to get you started;

I decided I would use the hearts in this mood board as my inspiration but would go with pinks rather than reds om my vintage card.

Here is how to put this card together:
  • Distress a panel of patterned paper from the Love Story paper pad, ink the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and adhere to a card blank to create the background
  • Distress a narrow panel, add some ruffled tulle to the back top of the panel and add it about a third of the way down from the top
  • Add a strip of wide venise lace on the bottom of the narrow panel
  • Add another distressed narrow panel on top of the first panel and then add a strip of lace along the bottom
  • Cut two chevrons, distress, ink and add to the bottom panel
  • Cover a wooden Love word with white Gesso and add to the chevrons
  • Hand cut two hearts, distress, layer and add along with some tiny flowers
  • Fussy cut a cupid and add beside the pair of hearts
  • Die cut flourishes from Rose Gold Metallic Kraft Stock and add below chevrons
  • Dye some seam binding with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and create a loopy bow
  • Paint a small resin heart with some acrylic paint and then rub with some Rose Gold Metallique wax
I love how a bunch of layers can make a card look so difficult when in fact, it is so simple.  I hope you will join us for this challenge.  One randomly chosen entry will receive a gift certificate to shop at The Funkie Junkie Boutique and the Design Team will choose their top picks with the overall winner receiving an opportunity to be a Guest Designer with us at a future date.
