King of My Heart

Happy Monday, all! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Here is my attempt for the Card Play Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.


I don't know if this is going to be qualified for the challenge, but the concept is definitely from playing cards. I die cut the label/card and hearts using PTI's dies with Coasters. I stamped the ornate swirl from the Reindeer Flight set with Ranger's Pearl Acrylic Paint Dabber then inked the piece with peeled paint, broken china and wild honey distress inks.


The little crown is from a Tim Holtz clear set that I got at my local M's a while ago, but you can find it in the Shabby French set and it's stamped with Ranger's Gold Acrylic Paint Dabber. I inked the hearts with spun sugar and victorian velvet distress inks. The metal wings from Regal Adornments are inked with Bottle, Denim and Snow Cap Alcohol Inks. Jennifer McGuire showed the technique in this video. I love the depth the Snow Cap Alcohol Ink created!


The card base is misted with Ranger Butterscotch Color Wash. I stitched the piece of burlap onto the card base and of course it has to go wonky on me... The sentiment is created with my computer and the strip of paper is inked with tea dye and vintage photo distress inks.

That's it for now. Hope you have a beautiful week! =)
