Did I mention how much fun I’m having crafting again? I’ve got my mojo back. I will admit there are two cards I won’t be posting because they just don’t meet my standards and where the first two I did to get the juices flowing again. They are bad! I mean toss in the garbage, don’t ever look at them again bad!
Anyway…today’s card is the 3rd card I made after the two train wrecks I made. I was feeling the need to color and play with Gamsol. I don’t play with these nearly as much as I should and now that I whipped them out I will be playing some more.
The card base is a standard A2 card (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) made out of Early Espresso Cardstock. I layered some pattern paper from the American Crafts XOXO paper pad with a bright pink cardstock that I can’t remember the name of 🙂
For the image I stamped it with Stazon ink (it won’t smear when coloring with Gamsol) on Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock. I did a lot of experimenting and searching for skin tones and hair colors. I liked this one the best, but will be playing more with different styles.

I die cut some sticky back cork with my MFT Blueprints 13 die for the little heart. I pulled the set out for one of the not so nice cards and just grabbed the little cluster of hearts from the set to die cut. You can use any little small heart you have to die cut the cork.
I think I might be on a bow kick. This is the 3rd card this week with a little bow.
To finish off the card I added some enamel dots on the little hearts and the bow. I had fun making this one.
Here are the supplies I used to make this card if you are interested in purchasing them for your own collection:
