Vera Lane Studio: The Kiss


Hello!
Happy Monday!

For my DT day at Vera Lane Studio today I have made a card with The Kiss, a digital set that was released last week.


I decided to make my card into a holiday card by adding some mistletoe from the Season's Greetings digital set. The images were coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut. 
The background is brayered Distress Oxides (Antique Linen, Scattered Straw and Fired Brick). Text is stamped on either side in Fired Brick and some mesh was stamped in Hickory Smoke. White, chalk paint was applied through a stencil and white paint was splattered one the entire background with a fan brush. The edges of the background were inked in black.
Some torn washi tape grounds the kissing couple who are popped on foam dots for dimension. The mistletoe, too, has foam pads beneath it. 
The sentiment was cut into strips, inked in black and glued directly onto the background. A doodled border was drawn around the card edges.


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

  

Thanks for stopping by today.
