Hello! Today I want to share my hanging valentine created for Blank Page Muse Stamps!
I wanted to create a valentine that wasn't just a card so why not one that can hang on the wall?
The Blank Page Muse Stamps theme for the February challenge is blue hearts/Time. For all the details and to enter the monthly challenge click the banner below! Here you will find all the inspiration from the entire Blank Page Muse team as well!
Blank Page Muse Stamps Used:
Other Supplies Used:
DecoArt Modeling Paste
DecoArt Fluid Acrylic Cobalt Blue Hue
Clear embossing powder
Art Anthology Minx ink Stargazer
Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Rusty Hinge
Black Archival ink pad
Hot Glue gun
This is a fairly simple project that can be created in these few steps below.
Start by stamping images with black archival ink onto cardstock. Coat with clear embossing powder and heat set them. For this project, I used the large image stamp above and the smallest one in the set.
Using a sponge applicator, lightly brush over images with Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge color. Set them aside to fully dry.
Onto the heart base...
Cut a heart from chipboard. Use the same stencil as a guide to cut out the proper size.
On the backside of chipboard heart, use hot glue to add ribbon for a hanger. Cover glue with a punched out piece of heavy cardstock as shown.
Mix some blue acrylic paint into the modeling paste on a palette. Apply the mixture through stencil onto cardstock. Add some splatters of blue minx ink and dry. Use adhesive to adhere the cardstock heart to the cardboard base. Add the sentiment using chit chat stickers.
Adhere the largest stamped image to the heart and then the smaller one with foam dots to raise it up for a dimensional effect. Add flowers around the stamped images.
