Good Day, Everyone!
As you can see, I have another heart card, but with a different color scheme than the last few. For this card, I started with one of my inky backgrounds. I cut it to size, added some Distress Stains and inks, decoupaged dictionary paper, Tim Holtz background stamping and a couple of heart stamps as a focal image. All of my stamping was done with Archival inks. I added a double organza bow, mounted it on an embossed layer and the base, and there you have it.
Here is a peek at the inside:

Here is another view of the front.
I feel pretty thrifty when I use my saved photo storage box index cards to soak up the leftover ink and paint on my craft mat. ( I discovered that it is only the boxes from Michael's that have the index cards, and not the ones from A. C. Moore) I always have a few close at hand, and love using them for quick card or tag backgrounds. It's a terrific way to experiment with unusual color combos, and hey, if it's really ugly, I just throw it away without feeling too wasteful. If I want to be extra super duper thrifty, (and sometimes I do!) I just paint over the mess with some Gesso and start over.
I hope everyone finds some time and energy for some thrifty crafting this week!
