Inky Impressions Challenges No. 28

Morning All, have you seen the Inky Impressions Challenge for the next two weeks? It is all about Luuurve (aka: Love).

Think Valentine!

Show the Luurve by adding hearts and pink to your project! But it doesn’t just have to be for Valentine’s day, it could be for anniversaries, thinking of you etc.

Here is my DT make for the challenge and before you scroll down, there is a hidden space for a secret message to your loved one on this card…can you spot it? 😉

I’ve used Angelica’s Lantern and matched her with Basic Grey Sugar Rush. I’ve used a doily to trim the heart shape and then hand stitched a border using the stitch in this tutorial here and beads.

Angelica has been coloured with PrismaColor pencils and Sansodor.

The sentiment was printed and I’ve doodled with Prismacolor Premier Illustration Marker and used a beaded straight stitch and button to decorate the sentiment seal.

So what about the secret message space?

Did you spot the beads sticking out from the top of the heart? Well the heart is a little pocket and if you pull the beads you will find a little piece of Sugar Rush paper stamped on the back with lines and decorated with glittery swirls and an itsy bitsy tassel.

You can write a secret message to your loved one and no one else will ever have to know – Tee Hee 🙂

I’ve popped this new card into my Etsy shop.

Have a Love Filled day
