Have you checked out the beautiful cards linked to our February Mixed Media Card Challenge? Theme 'Red' is interpret in many gorgeous mixed media cards, so if you are looking for card making inspiration I suggest you check out this and this post!
My second project was started in a stamping workshop I attended a week ago. Instructed by inspiring and very talented Liesbeth Fidder I spent two full days stamping, getting my hands messy with inks and paints, and learning a lot. Thank you Lisbeth for sharing your knowledge with us!
On the background of this card there are hearts stamped with gesso, resisting the Distress inks I put on top. Before decorating with text stamps I splashed water on the inked surface. Love that technique- it's such an easy way to add some extra pattern on your project.
The bird couple and the nest are from Art Journey 'Garden Birds' stamp set. Aren't they the cute! I stamped them on plain white cardstock and coloured with Distress inks.
The sentiment text and the little red hearts are die-cut using these dies (follow link for more info):
