Welcome to the Monthly Art With Heart Creative Showcase.
This month the Art With Heart Team have amazing projects to share with you that have been inspired by the card sketch below. The sketch is to be used as a starting point and has been interpreted in many creative ways by the Art With Heart Team.
I had so many ideas for my card tonight but in the end I decided to showcase the soon to be retired pressed petals specialty washi tape in a card that has a lot of texture and dimension.
I really love the texture that this burlap/hessian looking paper gives to the background of my card. It is from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series paper which is full of photographed images of flowers, wood and burlap on one side and vintage images on the other side.
But the real star of the show is this stunning flower. Can you believe it is made from washi tape?
It comes in a pack with the printed washi tape that runs underneath the flower and the sentiment…and it’s so easy to use. You simple peel the petals off, one by one, and adhere them to a small circle of cardboard to form a flower. The Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape pack is on special right now for just $7.80, a bargain! And the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper is also reduced before it soon retires too, from $25 to $18.75.
I used my embossing buddy on the back of the petals to take away some of the stickiness – this helps the petals to sit upright rather than cling to each other. To finish my flower off I placed an antique copper designer element in the centre.
Layered behind the flower are some sprigs I die cut from Mossy Meadow card stock and white vellum using the Nature’s Thought dies. And a double bow of white bakers twine and linen thread sits just under the flower for even more texture.
The hugs sentiment is created using the marker technique to colour just the word “hugs” from the “hugs, prayers, love” sentiment in the Positive Thoughts Stamp set. I coloured the stamp using my Merry Merlot marker and then die cut it out using the smallest stitched nested labels dies.
