Hello Ai Fans!
Welcome to the new challenge for the Art Impressions blog. For this challenge the theme is "Lots of Hearts" which is fitting for the coming Valentine's day or just a wonderful way to catch up on the some Anniversary cards or love themed cards.
For this card I used some of the new dies from Art Impressions that was shown at Creativation 2019!
Tag Stitched Dies and Hexagon Double Stitched Dies
I first stamped the birds then masked them. Then I could stamp the cute couple over the top. I used a variety of Copic Markers for the drawing. I also used another mask to cover the couple and the birds to stamp the hearts (which come in the Love Birds set) over the entire card front which creates my heart shaped rain. I used a light grey ink for those.
After the stamping and masking I started coloring using a variety of Copic Markers. I do have the full list of colors used down below if you are interested. I added some detail to the ground and bushes with a Micron pen. When I was coloring the sky I went right over the top of the hearts to make it easier and to get the rainy/streaky look. I used a Signo White gel pen to add the white details back.
Then I used the fantastic hexagon die from Art Impressions which are brand new! To cut the card front. I layered red underneath and popped up my image. So you can see it slightly from the side. Then I used the one of the small banner dies from the Tag Stitched dies on a portion of the sentiment that is heat embossed with white embossing powder on Simon Says Stamp Red Lipstick cardstock. I stamped and heat embossed the rest of the sentiment on black and cut it in half so that I could separate them slightly.
Just a simple Hexagon die cut for the inside of the card with the cute love birds stamp again and another great sentiment heat embossed in white. That's it! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you join in on the fun "Lots of Hearts" challenge. I can't wait to see what you guys create!
