This is the card that was out of sight on last weeks WOYWW, and was inspired by a Pin I spotted on Pinterest a few weeks ago.
Its a scalloped 6x6 card blank base, by the way.
This is the Pin that gave me the inspiration:
The heart shape was done by cutting a heart from copy paper, I used an old Red Sizzix die, but there are loads of heart die shapes around. Cut your shape from the centre of the paper, and hold it down onto your cardstock with some low tack tape on the back- gives you more room to sponge off excess ink, with less chance of straying onto your cardstock.
I started off sponging on the new Ranger Classic Cherry inkpad through the heart aperture, and came back in around the edges with Distress Ink Aged Mahogany. A Leafy Flourish stamp, from Dimension Stamps, was overstamped using Versafine Crimson Red. If you reposition your mask a fraction off the sponged shape before you do this, you will get your flourish starting right at the edge of your heart, rather than a few millimetres in.
I just tried to do a link to Dimension Rubber Stamps, and I can't find them, so maybe they have changed name, or ceased trading, sorry.
Using an off cut of the white card from trimming down the heart, I sponged again in the same two inks, and stamped the sentiment, from Visible Image in Versafine Crimson Red again.
Both pieces were matted onto dark red cardstock, and the sentiment attached with foam pads.

I'm also linking this to Fiona's (Staring At the Sea) blog, for her SIPIDI meme, which is for See it, Pin it, Do it. I think most of us manage the first two ok, its the third one that we never get around to!
