Valentine’s Day just sort of crept up didn’t it?! I just purchased this Hero Arts Everything Flowers background stamp, so I thought I would use that for a Valentine’s Day card. To my surprise, I sold pretty much all my heart-related stamps in my big sale over the summer, so I’m having to be creative with non-heart stamps!
I also just ordered the Hero Arts Soft Granite Shadow Ink, which I used for the background on this card. I love this ink. Originally I tried to use the Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, but it was too dark. I even tried stamping-off with it (stamping on a sheet of scratch paper before stamping the image) but it was still too dark. This Soft Granite ink is just the perfect light gray background – not distracting at all. I’m using it on another card coming up in the next few weeks.
I used Copic Markers for the flowers and then added a little highlight with the Faber Castell Design Memory Craft White Big Brush Pen. I’ve used this pen before in the same way on THIS CARD.
