I'm here with a last minute entry for Twofer Challenge #2: Hearts. I was afraid I'd miss the deadline but I did make it in the end, yay! There's even 5 more hours to go before the linky closes... Hmmm I could still start over if I wanted! :)
In my cards I've used a heart background stamp by CAS-ual Fridays and my occasions are Love and Christmas.
In my Love- card I've white heat embossed the heart background, die cut it with my currently favorite die by Lil'Inker and sponged ink to only to the top part of the image. I also splashed some water to the inked part for extra texture. The sentiment is heat embossed with white too.
A close up of the card:
The continuous heart pattern reminds me of retro wallpaper patterns, maybe from the 70's... And I though it might look fun stamped tone on tone. It looks alright IRL but was hard to capture with my camera, hopefully you can see the heart pattern a bit better in the detail photo below. For some reason the tone on tone look begun to look like Scandinavian Christmas print to me and therefore the second occasion turned into Christmas -my first idea was to make a Friendship or Sympathy card. In the end the second card is my take on "Scandinavian Retro Christmas". Lol! :) I used die cuts from W+9, a Finnish Christmas sentiment + white paint splatters. I seem to need to splatter all my cards now... It's a thing!
