Some Cupid Love...

Hi! I am back with my inspiration for the Craftscrappers Challenge #5: Cupid Love. In this challenge you need to include at least one thing that showcases a cupid/a heart/a wing.

In the goodie bag that I received from Craftyscrappers was a great pre-stamped sentiment. I was very keen on using it on my card. Since the sentiment was stamped in a lovely shade of brown, I decided to go for a masculine look. Here is my card.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper that I smooshed with shades of yellow and brown. These are photo inks from Camlin and they have really beautiful, intense colors. I then stamped repeatedly with my Script stamp by Kaisercraft with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Metallic Copper EP by WOW! I then trimmed it with Spellbinder's On The Edge Shapeablities die for a nice pinked edge on both sides, which I mounted on a black card A2 size card base.

For the sentiment, I sponged the die cut with a little Rusty Hinge and coated it with several layers of clear EP. This was then mounted on a piece of black cardstock which I had run through the Distressed Stripes embossing folder by Cuttlebug.

Be sure to check out the Craftyscrappers blog for more amazing inspiration from my fellow DT members and also the challenge details.

Craftyscrappers also has an huge range of die cuts for sale. The catalogues are updated regularly. So keep checking!
