Sunday Sentiments - 4x6 Art Card - Oct 19, 2014



I already had the background done with homemade sprays made from SU re-inker and water. I had gessoed it first. I have a heap of these cards from when I was a Linen consultant so they have text on them. They are invitation cards.
I recently bought some Tim Holtz stamps that were almost half price. The stamps here are from the Urban Chic collection by Stampers Anonymous. I think it's been around for a while. I used Versafine ink which really gives a great impression every time. The circular dots stamp is by Hero Arts - I went over the image with a black paint pen. The floral border is a rub-on from Art Stamps Australia.

I stamped the hearts on the background and also on white card and cut out 3 different sizes. The sentiment is also stamped on white card. I outlined the hearts and the bird with the black paint pen and inked the edges of the card with black Archival Ink. I added some more texture to the background by stamping the splatter dots which were on the edge of the heart stamp.

This is so beautiful Roz! Thanks for the description as well, otherwise I would have had a lot of questions! 6X4 is a good size to work on - I always find ATC size just too small for art cards. Thanks for linking up this week. Hope to see you next week as well!

A lovely card - I especially love the color choices. For some reason Green and Purple have always been TOPS on my combo list. I just love it.
