Hello and thanks for stopping by....
I started with a 5"x7" white card and taped around the whole card to give me a nice, clean border when removed
I used 3 Distress Oxide Inks, but you can use any make you have. I love these particular inks as they blend so well and the finished result is excellent.
I used 'worn lipstick', 'spiced marmalade' & 'cracked pistachio' then, using a blending tool, applied the inks onto the card
Once the card was coloured I removed the 'easy lift off' tape to reveal a clean, white border
From the 'Perspective' Range by Creative Expressions, I die cut 'LOVE' three times on white card then once on brown, to give me a shadow affect, the 'YOU' twice on white and once on brown
I then glued them together, adding the white onto the brown but slightly overlapping, for a shadow, applied more Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to the back of each word and adhered to the card front
I cut another piece of white card, a little smaller than the original 5"x7" and coloured it to match the card front. I dried the inks with my heat tool then stamped a verse using a Versafine Ink Pad in Onyx Black. Double sided tape was applied to the back prior to adding it to the card
You could use a combination of blues, greens, greys, browns etc which also would be ideal for the 'male' card
