You Make My Heart Soar


This is an oversized card (9" x 7 1/2") that I've made for my husband for Valentine's Day. The folded card is a very light cream color. For the background, I stamped the large flourish (Quietfire Design) with Ranger resist ink and then sponged over it with Adirondack inks red pepper and cranberry. I've used the largest heart and largest set of wings in a pack of grungeboard(elements pack, dot pattern). The heart I painted with Golden fluid acrylic naphthol red medium, let it dry, and then dry brushed on iridescent gold deep. The wings were painted with iridescent bronze. "LOVE" is also grungeboard (alphabet set, swirl pattern) and is colored with a Krylon gold paint pen. "You Make My Heart Soar" was done with a Dymo labeler.
