Love hearts – soft pastel ink blending

I’m not sure if the Love Heart sweets are available all over the world, but they are like a hard sherbert sweet here in the UK. This card for some reason reminds me of Love hearts with the pastel colours and also the hearts that feature on the card. I also think these sentiments could also easily fit on a love heart sentiment and not look out of place. I’ve created a card with a beautiful soft pastel ink blending detail to add a soft touch to this card using the new Notes of Love samp & die set

Soft pastel ink blending

Analogous colours

Start off by stamping the rounded banner from the Notes of Love stamp set in the following inks: Be Mine, Sweet Sixteen, Serenade and It’s A Boy.  These are beautiful pastel colours in the Party Ink collection line and are analogous colours – the colour wheel helps you find these analogous colours.

Next, stamp the sentiments onto the banners from the Notes of Love stamp set in the following corresponding colours: Flirty Fuschia, Grape Crush, Drive-in and Suede Shoes. Use the coordinating Notes of Love die set to cut the sentiment outs. 

Creating matching Soft pastel ink blending

To create the soft pastel ink blending background, blend the pastel colours onto a piece of card with blending brushes. Next, die-cut this background out with the Scallops & Dots die as well as from white card stock. Layer these onto a card base with foam pads for dimension. 

Adhere the sentiments onto the front of the card and then use the little hearts die from the Notes of Love die set to cut out some matching hearts in the same colours.

Embellish the card with the hearts as well as some of the sequins from the Portland and Flamenco Sequin Mixes to finish the card off.
