This is a card I made using a collage affect for the background.

I cut out two dies at different sizes and used the larger size as a mask for the ink onto some torn vellum. I then used the same ink to ink up the edges of the die cut out and stamped the sentiment on.
I used watercolour crayons and used a paintbrush to paint the heart.

I got three buttons, to tie in with the colour scheme.

I used four brads, once for each corner to hold the vellum in place.

Hope you have a great day, thanks for stopping by :D

I'm hoping to enter my card in the following challenges:
Flourishes - Think Pink
The Stamping Boutique - Pink Pink Pink
Through the Craftroom Door - Challenge 38

What a great background! The collage is great with those papers and the ink treatment on the vellum is creative and clever.

I love your card. One of my favorite techniques is to do a collage . It's so much fun to be able to just dig into my stash and grab, isn't it. You did a great job.
HUGS, Jacqy
