Okay, it's probably cheating. But, when I saw today's Midweek Throwdown challenge was to make a card involving water, I opted to post this little card again. It's not that I wouldn't love to make another one of these, but I have been so busy with hubby's retirement card and a Father's Day card for my dad.... So, I jumped at the chance to recycle these little heart prints.
Have a good rest of the week!
Two posts in one day!!!! Found a little time this afternoon to make a card featuring water for this month's OBDB Challenge for OWH. For those of you new to OWH, Our Daily Bread Design is a fabulous supporter of OWH. One of the many ways in which this wonderful company supports OWH is to pay shipping charges based on the number of cards linked to their monthly challenge: 1 box for 25 linked cards, 2 boxes for 50 linked cards.
This is a card that's been living in my head for a while now. I just wasn't sure how to pull it off. I have to admit I'm pretty pleased with the way this turned it out.
The wet-sand hearts were created by heat embossing a strip of the used sandpaper dp with Distress Ink embossing ink and American Crafts ZING clear embossing powder. I debated over heat embossing the sentiment, but finally decided to stamp it in navy -- to complement, rather than distract from -- the embossed hearts. Finally, I decided to place navy hearts behind the embossed hearts to pop them just a little bit more.
One card down, two more to go.
If you're lucky enough to win ODBD blog candy, you're in for a real treat. I was one of the lucky winners
and choose the gingham background stamp used in the card at the right as part of my prize. Thanks again, ODBD!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Thanks for visiting and happy scrappin'!
