Well, I didn't just use the challenge loosely for inspiration (IC149 means Inspiration Challenge 149 - over at SplitcoastStampers). I pretty much recreated a painting on a card. I'm guessing if you go HERE you'll be able to tell which painting I used for my inspiration ;) You can see the challenge on SCS HERE. I made this card on Saturday but forgot to show it to you, so here are the details now.
Here's how it went....I saw that there was some texture to the background so I used my Canvas BG stamp with Close to Cocoa ink and stamped it off a couple of times before putting it on my Very Vanilla card. I wheeled my Rough Texture Jumbo Wheel in some Basic Black and wheeled it on the card. I added my sentiment from Short & Sweet, some black brads using my piercing template as a guide, watercolored my heart on some watercolor paper with my handy dandy Aqua Painter (they're on sale right now while supplies last at Stampin' Up! - check it out HERE and purchase one HERE) and my Ruby Red and Tangerine Tango re-inkers, cut out my heart, and put it on the card with some dimensionals, and PRESTO!
In lieu of a recipe, you just got that lovely narrative :)
What do you think of the card????
