What would Smeared and Smudged be without an event to celebrate Valentines Day - OUR WAY! Welcome to Day 1 of our annual three day long
BLOODY VALENTINE BLOG HOP 2015!
|"The Other Side of a Broken Heart" |
We have 16 stampers participating this year and you arrived here from Teresa's blog
! If you just popped by my blog first today and would like to hop from the beginning or get lost along the way then you can find the entire blog hop roll below my project and over there in my right sidebar!
Today I'm sharing a candle luminary with a matching card that would be the perfect inspirational gift for someone suffering from a broken heart!
Featuring Smeared Ink's Other Side of Fear digi stamps
available in the SI store as both a set and as individual images! The Winged Heart is from SI's Heart Wings rubber set
Please click on the photos below to enlarge them for a better look!
I designed the panels for the luminary and the matching double-sided card in Photoshop CS6 and printed them out on medium weight paper to give the luminary the look of parchment when the flameless candle is lit. The panels were assembled into a square and adhered together with Scotch Quick Dry adhesive and then all the seams hidden under Tim Holtz Idea-ology "measuring tape" paper tape. I applied Black Soot Distress Ink to edges of all the luminary panels and the card panel before adhering the double-sided card panel to black cardstock. I scored and folded the card in half, added the same paper tape to the card spine and completed the design with 3 self-adhesive pearls I coloured black with my Copic marker.
