Hi there, I'm back again with round two of the Heartless Valentine challenge over at Frilly and Funkie. This week, our funkie team has their take on Cec's challenge: Make a Valentine using the traditional colors of red, pink and white but NO HEARTS.
I'm just crazy about Wendy Vecchi's recent makes using rubbing alcohol and archival reinkers. So I grabbed my red reinker (Vermillion) and some rubbing alcohol plus a piece of Ranger's Specialty Stamping Paper and started playing. Once the background was completed, I stamped the flower with Jet Black archival and clear embossed it. Then, using a water brush filled with rubbing alcohol, I applied alcohol to the petals of the flower and blotted it off with a paper towel. I did that a couple of times and it removed most of the color, leaving it pink. I also blotted the red off the leaves and painted them with a green reinker using the alcohol filled water brush.
I used a Nestabilities frame to create a rectangular outline using a permanent marking pen. Masking off the area outside of the rectangle and using a Finnabair Checker stencil from Prima, I stenciled the checks with Jet Black archival. Then I masked off the inside of the rectangle and stenciled the stripes using a WV stencil. I added a few doodles and stamped the flourishes and sentiment with Jet Black archival.
It was finished off by applying white Wendy Vecchi embossing paste through a Prima mask and then applied Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter to give it a little bling...another fun play time in my craft room.
Thanks for stopping by. Please be sure to stop by Frilly and Funkie to check out the other heartless Valentines.
