Vellum Hearts

Hi!  I'm back with a card for the latest Fusion challenge, where we have gone with  lots of hearts this time round!  Of course, if you're not into hearts, you can be inspired by the colors, the stained glass or the sketch.  The choice is yours!
I made this card some weeks ago and at the time I was having fun playing with alcohol inks.  I decided to use vellum as it is non-porous and I thought the transparency with the alcohol inks would make for a fun look.



Once the ink was dry, I die-cut the panels with a pierced heart die and adhered them to a white card base using vellum tape for the purple hearts and clear foam tape for the blue/green heart.  The sentiment was die-cut from both black and silver foil - I love this two-part die by Create A Smile.


This was a very simple card to make and alcohol inks are so addicting and fun!  I've had mine for years and years and periodically pull them out to play with.

Head on over to see what the rest of the team have done with this challenge.  I hope you have time to join us.

Products used:

Ink:  Alcohol Inks (Ranger)
Cardstock:  White, vellum, silver foil, black
Dies:  Pierced Heart Stax (MFT), Thanks Twice (Create a Smile)

Cheers
Karren

Love this Karren - I was so keen to understand how you achieved such a wonderful glassy effect on your hearts - now I know! Very clever and so reminiscent of stained glass. Gorgeous colour combo too!
