one layer wednesday: red and pink

I decided that I must use the gorgeous heart stamp that came with the new issue of Craft Stamper for the theme at One Layer Wednesday

To make this card, I first stamped the ribbon in red (versafine crimson red) and masked it and stamped the heart in versacolor old rose.

I was going to leave it like that at first. I liked it, but I find that other people find flat cards a bit dull, so I decided to make it more interesting yet still keeping it one layer by creating a torn aperture. I did this using the cutting/tearing technique I tried a few days ago. to do this just cut the edges of the shape and tear!


  1. I think it's simply smashing and the Craft Stamper freebie is just a smashing image too
