Loved Up - Dawn Heald

Hi Everyone,'s the weekend!

I'm back today with another project
for you, this time from Dawn.

Dawn says -

Hi everyone, I do hope love is around
 you during this next week. Whether
 it be other half's, family or friends etc.
I've used a set of brand new Paperartsy
JOFY stamps and gone with a bit 
grungy yet fun card.

To make this card here's what I did -

Gathered some supplies I wanted to use
 and this then gave me the way to proceed.
 I was needing inspiration as I had too
 many ideas floating around my head.
 This worked. I didn't use the mask.

I chose a couple papers from the pad and
 altered them a little with scuffing the
 edges and adding various small stamps
 and distress inks. I did the same with a
 hand cut heart shape. I added dabs of
 double sided tape runner on the heart
 and green areas showing and pressed
 Stix 2 foil onto it.

Next I used Distress Markers to colour
 in some of the small images on the background.
 Then layered these onto my square card blank.
I stamped my main images onto book
 paper and coloured in with Distress 
markers, cut them out and layered
 onto plain book page and cut out again,
 then attached to the card with foam pads. 
Some words from the stamp set again
 onto book page, inked and stuck on.

I finished with some Lime Green Stickles.
So what do you think? Did it work using the
 fun whimsy mechanical type images with
 a grungy look?

Oh yes Dawn, I think it did!!
Don't you?

Products Dawn used -

From stash - old book pages

So that's it for another week,
tomorrow is Challenge Day and 
there is going to be a little change!

  1. Absolutely, the grungy look works very well with the stamps and it's a relief to have an alternative colour scheme for Valentine's.

  2. Love your crazy robots. Fab colour combo. Hugz
