To My Valentine

To my Valentine 2013 card and box

This has been a crazy week and I’m so sorry that this is getting posted so late. I made my card and gift box for Twisted Thursdays challenge but I just had so many things to do I could not get it posted. The gift box is an SVG file and is very easy to make. My card I used stamps from Stampendous they are from their Flower Heart Set.

The heart and the corner is the set of stamps. The sentiment is also from Stampendous but I do not know what it is called. I ended up stamping it twice because of course the first time I stamped it it was not straight so I used some foam dots and mounted it on top of where I stamped it.

These are Marvy Brush markers, they are a watercolor base. These markers you color right on the stamps with them. Starting with the darkest color adding in some areas and working down to a lighter color.  After you have added your colors (ink) to the stamp you breath where you have added the ink, what that does is activates (make it wet) the ink again so now you can stamp your stamp on your card stock. I tried to find a video for the marvy brush markers and I could not find anything for the brush markers, sorry!!! If you do not understand what I’m saying let me know.
