There are a number of elements to this card. To start off, the background is a sponged ink technique using Distress inks (Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, Pumice Stone, Forest Moss, and Bundled Sage). The image is by Magenta and I used Copic markers to color the image. After coloring, I cut out the image to place on the background.
I layered this onto a cream cardstock cut with Spellbinders' Scalloped Edge Frameabilities. It is the inside portion of the larger frame. The blue cardstock was cut to an A2 size (5 1/2" x 4 1/4") and then I used the Tim Holtz Alterations On The Edge Plaque & Postage die to alter the edge of the card. I also added a ribbon (and adhered before layering the focal point) that goes around the card and ties on the side. I added another piece of the cream cardstock on the inside of the card, to both highlight the edge as well as making it easier to write a message. Lastly, and it's hard to tell, a Copic Atyou Spica (clear) glitter pen was used to create twinkling stars. In person, they reflect the light beautifully, creating a romantic feeling.
This image could be used for a number of occasions, including Valentine's, an anniversary, or for an engagement. I think I'll be using this image quite a lot. Enjoy!
