The Origin of Love

The theme for this week's Created Byhand Challenge is Mango Sunset or Orange and blue. This is a rather quick and easy card, except for the vellum layer.

Brayer a piece of glossy cardstock in a crosshatch pattern using Kaleidacolor Desert Heat rainbow inkpad, heat set and emboss with Tim Holtz Rays folder. Use a tiny stipple brush to add Brilliance Sunflower Yellow Dew Drop ink to the raised rays and heat set. Rub edges with Tim's Paper Distressor and Sunflower Yellow ink.

Stamp Flourished Corners and The Origin of Love (Quietfire Design) on vellum using Brilliance Graphite Black ink and clear embossing powder. I stamped the left corner, then the saying and then the right corner to get the spacing I wanted. Only took three tries, lol. Cut out on an angle with Spellbinders Labels Four. Attach to background with pieces of double-sided tape behind the Fourished Corners and attach to blue base card.

Enabler's List:
The Origin of Love rubber stamp
Flourished Corners rubber stamp, set of 3
Tim Holtz Embossing Folders, Rays
Tim Holtz Paper Distresser
Spellbinders Nestabilities, Labels 4
Brilliance Dew Drop Inkpads, Graphite Black and Sunflower Yellow
