Another week has gone by and it's my turn to set the Tanda Teaser this week...so I've gone for something a bit hip....my daughter is really into texting her mates and book text seems to be pretty big in card making atm...so the Tanda teaser this week is "Text It!" I saw a really great tutorial over on splitcoasters ,over here,
This gave me the inspiration for my card....
For my card I stamped the text stamp from Tanda Valentine set 1 repeatedly in black stazon on text and graphics card from Staples (I still cannot bring myself to rip up actual books!). This was then covered with a couple of layers of gesso and allowed to dry. Once dry I stamped Jane Daffern's romance stamp in versamark and heat embossed with clear ep. I swiped yellow and lilac colour box chalk inks over the image and then removed the clear ep using copier paper and a hot iron. I cut the image out and matted it, using tiny lilac heart shaped brads, with gold card and a layer of acetate over the top..the acetate gives the card a professional finish and works really well with this technique. The finished card is an anniversary card for DH....It's our anniversary on Thursday..so I hope he's not reading my blog!!!
Whilst, to keep things simple, the challenge is to use text (not just a sentiment) on your card...I hope you try out this technique as it is really fun to do!
