Valentine Note Card – Papertrey Ink January 2015 Blog Hop Challenge


pti jan 2015 valentine

This month’s Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge is titled “Hearts”.

Here is the inspiration:

pti jan 2015 inspiration

I decided to go small scale, based on the size of the heart stamps I had from Papertrey Ink (both from Tiny Treats: Valentine stamp set). I stamped the hearts in VersaFine Onyx Black and embossed them with clear powder. Then, I watercolored them with Kuretake Gansai Tambo paints. The dark pink layer is embossed with a heart background. The sentiment heart is framed with red glitter paper cut with Papertrey Ink’s Framed Out #12 die. The card base is Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
