* Vera Lane Studio: All Heart


Today is my DT day for Vera Lane Studio and I decided to make a Valentine card with the All Heart digi set. This set comes with two black outline digis for you to colour, a pre-coloured digi ready to use for collage or card making and a sentiment.

Here is my card:

I used a gelli print as the base for my background. It was a secondary print with splashes of red and gold and plenty of white space. I cut it to size (12.5 x 12.5 cm) and inked around the edges with Fired Brick Distress Oxide to add a frame element. I then added some stamping along the edges using Black Soot Distress Oxide. Next I added some texture paste through a tiny dots stencil and, when this was dry, I used my finger to spread some Gold Sparkle Medium around the edges of the background and also on top of the texture paste.

I coloured the girl with Copics and gave her some white highlights and glittery eyelids. I fussy cut her and popped her on foam pads, then placed her on top of a strip of washi. The sentiment was cut into strips, edged in Black Soot and adhered to the background. 

I decided to mat my background onto black paper as this made the bright colours pop even more. Once this was completed everything was attached to a blank white card.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
