It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Little Sleuth – R205 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for my main image and No Mystery – H204 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). This little sleuth has uncovered the clue to why he is so in love with his special someone. This card could be used for Valentine’s Day, Anniversary or even a birthday!
To make the background for the card, I die cut multiple squares using My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out in various brown cardstock and some white Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock.
For the brick background, I used Darice – Brick Wall Embossing Folder and then various Tim Holtz inks listed below to give the different colours for the texture.
I coloured in the main image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it and used a black marker to go around all of the edges.
I layered all of the pieces together using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop them up and then 2-sided tape to mount the final square onto the 6″ x 6″ card base.
To finish off the card, I used some brown twine and criss-crossed it to make a little bow and added in the question mark using some clear gems that I coloured with E23.
