Onto my card, I used bits and pieces of different collections to put this one together. The paper is from the Delicate Aster Collection. The flowers have been made using the Open Vintage Floret stamp set & Vintage Floret die, The leaves are from Bella Rose die cut set and the sentiment panel is from the Raindrop on Roses paper pack. And of course I used a whole lot of glitter :)

Canvas Corp Crew Challenge : Valentine Cards!


Today is a very very happy day as I share my first post as part of the Canvas Corp Design Crew! Canvas Corp Brands are so exciting and I am so looking forward to create an entire year with them :)

The challenge today is to create a Valentine Card and send it off to someone who isn't expecting it. Since I am giving it to someone who reads my blog, I am not gonna disclose it here :P

Onto my card, I created a mixed media style card with some amazing Tattered Angels mists and Canvas Corp Papers.

Yeah, I went crazy with those awesome mists :D

I love how it is full of texture and of course colour !

And I added a little handwritten sentiment as well :)

Here are the supplies I used to make this card,

Canvas Corp Card and Envelope 9"X4"
Canvas Corp Pattern Paper - Paris Hearts of Ivory
Tattered Angels Mists - Suede
Tattered Angels Mists - Bahama Blue
Tattered Angels Mists - Vintage Pink
Tattered Angels Mists - Cross My Heart
Tattered Angels High Impact Paint - White
Acrylic Paint - Permanent Rose
Sakura Model Paste
Faber Castell Brush
Faber Castell Multi Marker Black
Canvas Corp Twine
Charcoal Pencil

And here's how did it step by step 

Cut the pattern paper to size. Using an old credit card apply modelling paste randomly on the pattern paper to add some texture. Let dry.

Once the texture paste is dry, spray on your favorite mists. It's ton of fun :)
Let dry.

Spray some more with a contrasting color to add more interest. Let dry.

Use High Impact Paint in white and the back of the brush to add some dots. Let dry.

Paint a free-style heart with thick acrylic paint. Don't dilute the paint and it will add to the texture. Let dry.

Add highlights to the heart and the edges of the paper using the marker and charcoal pencil. Smudge the marks along the way to soften them.

And then use a sticker, button and some twine to embellish. Use foam adhesive to adhere the pattern paper to the Canvas Corp Card base.

See easy peasy and awesome :)
