Hey peeps. Happy Friday. Well my title says it all. Have you ever just felt complete just because someone decided to give you a hug? Has it melted away all the hurt, anxiety or pain of your day? It's a simple task that anyone can do and it's free! May card today speaks of just that kind gesture.
I'll just put it out there, I'm a hugger. I mean a BIG hugger. I don't want to shake your hand and be all polite, I want to hug you with my heart. LOL Now I do know my boundaries with this and I hug with caution. However, once I get to know you, watch out because you're gonna get hugged.
I'm using the Lots of Hugs stamp set today from My Favorite Things. I used the new Rangers Wilted Lavender Distress Oxide Ink pad to create the background. I'll have a video up next week sharing these amazing inks and a few ways I used them on a few card panels. I sponged on the color towards the top of my card panel and lightly let it fade out towards the middle. I ran this panel through my Sizzix machine with a stitched rectangle die from My Favorite Things. I sprtized on a little bit of water to get the ink to activate. Oh and did it ever. 😍
Next I stamped out the sentiments in Versafine onyx black ink. I wanted to achieve an ombre look on my card so I used three purple color Copic markers to get this effect. I outlined the large hugs sentiment with a cool grey Copic marker. For the finishing touches I placed on a "few" sequins.
Okay peeps that's a wrap for my card today. I'm so happy you took the time to swing by today. Now don't forget TOMORROW I will be on the Simon Says Stamp blog sharing a card.
