This VERY plain & simple card was made by brayering Cosmic Copper Brilliance and Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance inks onto White UltraSmooth cardstock. I tried this on the Glossy cardstock, and I just couldn't get the brayer marks to blend like it does with dye inks. The White US worked perfectly! I did end up sponging just a little more copper on the bottom after I was done, but I don't think that is like, cheating or anything... is it, Melisa? :)
I stamped the dot border from Creative Inspiration inside and three small dots of it in the lower right corner of the front with Burnt Sienna. Also using Burnt Sienna, I stamped "missing you" from the Level A Hostess set Feel Better. I ran some misc. copper ribbon (from M's) through a slit made in the spine and used small Glue Dots to hold the ends down under the heart.
The heart was salvaged from my "I might use it someday" pile o' scraps! The little guy from the Level B Hostess set Criss Cross just so happened to be stamped in the same blue Brilliance ink (winner!!!!). I popped that baby up on a tiny piece of a Pop Dot. Finished the whole thing off with a few faux dew drops from M's.
I totally dig the color combo (hello... copper... need I say more?) and the sparkle to the ink... and the little lonely heart in the corner, but is it too simple? Too blah?
What do you think?
