A secret admirer

Hi crafters. I ordered some stripey washi tape but I didn’t realise how big the stripes and width was. I have used it here over some fluoro hot pink cardstock. It toned down the colour a lot and gave it a mottled texture so I went with that. I cut the heart freehand and painted it with pink chalk paint. I then stamped some grungy cracks over it. I used another grunge stamp to stamp with embossing ink and added WOW Raspberry coulis embossing glitter. This powder is fuchsia with blue glitter in it. I then rubbed embossing ink over it again and added bits of purple glitter and then ultra high clear embossing powder. I rubbed some black crayon around the outside.

The sentiment was stamped with Simon says Stamp grunge alphabet in archival ink. I rubbed purple and black crayon around the outside to make it more moody.

What am I going to put inside? The person who will be getting this card follows Jurgen. I have ordered the cute pug stamps from Funky Fossil and hope to put one inside if they arrive in time, and say it’s from Jurgen. I think that will cause a smile.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: All loved up

Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Anything goes

Time Out Challenge #154: Affectionate
