Scrapbook Market ATC exchange - Feb 2012 final reveal

The theme for Feb2012 ATC exchange is HEART and I wanted to try something 'arty' and different. And yup, all cards turned out really different!
1. I did a background stamp using 7Gypsies stamp using TH Stormy Sky
2. Added the hearts stamp from Hero Arts using TH Barn door ink and misted with water at the bottom left, hoping that the blue and the red would some how blend in.
3. I tested to blotch the OA Hopscotch ink with mini straw (from thrift shop Daiso), some came to be quite big blotches and took awhile to dry up
4. Then splattered a little OA Lemon Drop.
5. For the the twine, it's from from The Twinery, I tied a knot, dipped into some glue (with added some water) and shaped a heart shape onto the card.

Supplies :
* 7 Gypsies - Lille Collection - Clear Acrylic Stamps
* Hearts stamp from Hero Arts
* Tim Holtz distress ink Stormy Sky and Barn Door
* Pink Hopscotch Sprinklers and Yellow Lemon Drop from October Afternoon (mini straw from a local thrift shop for the blotch)


  1. Wow, these look so cool, I might want to give that a try. If only I had time........... {sigh}

    1. I'd post what the rest of the scrappers did... I need to buck up the effort & perhaps more styling :P You are doing just great with your fabulous layouts/cards!
