Kathi here today to share with you my Valentine Cards in a heart tin. I added media ink to the top of the lid with an applicator using a dabbing technique.
Both cards inside of metal tin heart.\
The fronts of the cards have three layers, card stock, light chipboard then patterned paper. The front of the cards were then prepped using gesso. Then structure paste was used with the Cascade Stickable Stencils to create texture on the cards. At that point, I mixed Dekor Paint Soft in Denim and Creamy Acrylic in White to paint over the texture. Olive media ink was used to color the metal butterfly and magenta media ink on the metal flower. Creamy Acrylic in Metallic Red Copper was used to color the wood chipboard words and the flowers were cut from Life in Color paper using the Perfect Petal dies with Aqua and Emerald brads. Embellished with chipboard, I then die cut a crown using Royal dies. The chipboard lock and key as well as the crown was accented using glossy accents.
Gold media ink was used to color the metal flower, then finished with an aqua brad. The chipboard lock and key was accentuated with glossy accents. Perfect Petal die was used to create all the flowers from the paper collection with varied colors of Double Dot brads in the center of each.
Using the bead paste and adding Morning Glory media ink, then mixing in the 3D powder and 3D balls. I added this fun texture to the upper right side of one of the cards creating a cool effect and finishing it off by dabbing it with Dekor Soft in Denim paint. Dripping media ink in Olive, Morning Glory and magenta over the finished texture then positioning the word "Love" over the 3D balls.
As a final touch, Olive and Magenta media inks were used to color the metal embellishments, I hope you like this project. Such fun to play with colors and textures!
