PaperArtsy Challenge - Linda Cain (2)

I'm getting another card done this week! I chose the second of Linda Cain's projects to work from (see here) - a Valentines card
I was a bit heavy handed with the Claret and Baltic Blue, and no amount of Nougat seemed to make any better.
I think my background is more "Chainsaw massacre" and less Valentines... 
Still, Dave likes it (and as he's probably getting the card, that's okay).
I stamped the house from Squiggly Ink Bricks & Mortar 1 onto white card,  then painted it with Claret and Baltic Blue (using a black marker pen to redraw the bricks on the roof), and cut out the square in the middle, so you can see my background through it.
I also stamped the heart from Squiggly Ink Love & Kisses 1, painted it and cut it out. The words are from the same set (Love you more stamp), I just masked out the words and stamped what I wanted.
The hearts down the sides are a stamp in my collection (not sure who by), that I stamped with a bit of nougat paint.


  1. Oh, pretty! I don't think it's Chainsaw Massacre at all . Love those little hearts that you stamped, they are ideal.

  2. It's gorgeous Trish, I love that 'house'!
    I do believe the hearts could be by The Stamp Bug...remember them?!

  3. I think you are being too hard on yourself Trish:) The less fussy background lends itself perfectly to this Squiggly Ink image IMO,like the little brick detail you have added. Thanks again for joining in on the PaperArtsy blog.

  4. nice card

  5. Ha ha ha, chainsaw massacre! I laughed when I saw that, but that's a very unfair description of a lovely coloured background. I would never have thought if combining those colours but they look great :) i like your house and heart too, complement your theme well. Hope Dave didn't 'bleed' on it!


Thank you for leaving a comment, it means a lot to me.
