House Of Cards new challenge is to make a Valentine background for your card, you can use our suggested colours if you wish.
Making a background gave me another chance to break out the Distress Oxides, these inks are so much fun to work with. I used three shades of pink on white card to blend a background, then I spritzed a stencil with water and laid it over the background. The water reacts with the ink and turns it chalky giving a fab pattern.
The stamp was a hand me down from a friend, it's perfect for anniversary cards. This was stamped with black Versafine, I chose not to colour the image as I like it just as it is.
Mounting on black makes the image and the cut out pop but when it came to mounting on a card a white one didn't look right. Using the image panel as a guide I coloured a white card blank to match. A small pearl heart in the two shaped corners finished it off.
Pop over to the House Of Cards blog to see all the DT inspiration, then come and show us what you have made.
