I have been playing around with gesso lately, and I did a little stamping with it on this card. You can see on the bottom left corner the scroll design that was stamped with gesso, and then over that I used several colors of Distress Inks to create a resist. After the ink was applied and blended, I stamped some scripted writing over the top of it, Then, to finish the background I spritzed it with some Tsukineko shimmer mist.
For the embellishments, I cut the heart first out of black cardstock, and then again out of acetate. The acetate I also ran through my Sizzix with an embossing folder to give it some texture. Then, I punched a hole at the top and tied some twine into a bow.
The polka dot flower I made by ruffling some washi tape onto a carstock circle and then adding a brad in the center.
My sentiment was stamped using Avery Elle's Peony stamp set. I also added a little scalloped border from a die from Lawn Fawn. I absolutely LOVE this die set. I have used it many times and it always looks fantastic! My sentiment was then adhered with foam adhesive to give it some dimension.
For a finishing touch, I added some black heart rhinestones.
Here's some fun products I used!
