I created this card for a color and sketch challenge on Splitcoast. I also wanted to try out the Eggshell Mosaic Background that was published ย a few weeks back.

My heart started as a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut with a Classic Heart Nestabilities die. I adhered egg shells with Multi Medium Matte Glue. ย Once the glue dried, I sprayed the shells with Perfect Pearls Glimmer Mist and added Alcohol Inks (Butterscotch, Sunset Orange, Wild Plum and Pool). More Perfect Pearls was sprayed and then the heart was set aside. Once it dried, another layer of Multi Medium glue was added, this time the glossy kind.

The card base is a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded. Marigold Tattered Angels Mist was sprayed in the center of the card front. Next a background script from My Favorite Things First Class Friend was stamped in Dandelion Memento Ink.

One of the little circle images was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink on white cardstock and punched out with a 3/4″ circle punch. ย The wavy part of the post mark was stamped on the left side of the card. The heart was adhered to the right hand side , the circle sentiment placed so hangs slightly off the left of the card, right over the postmark wave.

First class was stamped in Jet Black on white cardstock and cut out. Friend is part of a sentiment and was stamped to the left side. The First class was adhered slightly over it. A paper pierced row on the right next to the heart finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
