New Stamps. Tiny Card.

Hi everyone, this is a tiny card, which could be either a greeting card or made into a gift tag. it focuses on the mini heart stamp from EM16.  

I stamped the whole heart onto book text and added a wash of Beach Hut. Then on smoothy card I painted Pumpkin Soup and Orchid and stamped parts of the heart again. 

I painted more Beach Hut onto smoothy and stamped the text from EDY12 and EDY14

Don't be afraid to stamp out text and then cut it up to make your own phrases, you don't have to stick with the phrases as they are. Here I made a new phrase and mounted the words onto plain smoothy. 

I stamped the journalling mini EM13 onto handmade paper. then tore around the edges. 

I layered up the parts of the heart and cut them out. Then created more layers with black card, hand made paper, the journalling image and the heart. To tie all the images together I wound some jute string around them and added a button that I painted with Orchid. 

Frescos work perfect on buttons!

Everything was them mounted onto a card blank, and some doodling added. 

I like how the patterns/flower petals within the handmade paper also add interest. 

A quick and easy one for today.
