Happy Great Impressions Friday to you. Valentines is in the air and so I have made a Valentine that is a little different, gone are my beloved reds and pinks, sparkle and dazzle, and as many embellishments as will fit on a card. Instead, I have a plain creamy Valentine.
The image, Great Impressions H197 Branched Heart, is stamped on cream paper using Sepia ink and lightly colored. Just a hint of shimmer was added using a glitter pen. The rest of the card is cream with just a touch of pink distress ink around the edges of the mats. For my few embellishments; ribbons and butterflies I sponged the same pink so that it matched perfectly. I couldn't complete resist a little bling and added to pink pearls of the same hue.
All in all I think this came out very classy and definitely worth a stamp to mail it to my little sis.
