Hello there Joy Clair friends! It's Kerry here and I'm thrilled to share a project with you today that features the brand new Love Languages set from Joy Clair! I was soooo excited to see this sentiment set because I saw my heritage language included! WOOP! I have always wanted some stamps that include German text (I can speak and read a little German but am not fluent) in my collection. When I saw the I love you, auf Deutsch, I knew that was the sentiment I would be using! WAHOO!
I thought a while about how I would feature this sentiment and make it pop and I decided on creating a little chain of hearts in the background. Since I love dimension and texture in my creations, I decided to create some little hearts and sew them together. Here's how I did it:
I used a plastic sleeve and rubbed some ink onto it then added the ink to the squares. After that, I spritzed the pieces with water so they could bleed. I rubbed them around in the pool of colored ink and then when I was happy with the color saturation, I set them onto a piece of graph paper to dry up a bit. The graph paper bled a bit and left some impressions, but not enough to notice. I then spritzed some golden ink on the squares then dried them with my heat gun and a pair of tweezers.
After they were dry, I punched a heart out of each square. I used my sewing machine to sew all the hearts together and then cut each "chain" into a set of four. I then glued each chain onto a piece of white cardstock.
My next step was to stamp the sketchy hear onto the blue hearts. I used gold embossing powder to make them stand out. The final step was sprinkling a bit of pearlescent ink onto the panel, adding some pearls and applying the sentiment tag. I love how the tag just hovers over those hearts. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy using the new Love Languages set and were inspired to create something beautiful with it!
