Grassy Hearts!

Good Morning all and I thought I would sit quietly this morning and update my blog with one of the cards I made for the Clarity Stamp show on Sunday.
One of the the sets came with this lovely little grasses with Hearts on. 
I had been playing with my new inkadinkado cog and wheel that my lovely friend Brenda had given to me and it struck me that I could use the Heart Grass stamp and that to make a pretty small card. 

Here's how I did it!

I cut a piece of theuva card to a square and placed the wheel so it was centred on it. I positioned the stamp where I wanted it to be on the paddle and inked it in green and red versafine ink. I stamped it first generation then moved it on and did second generation all.

Once I had got a completed ring of grasses I removed the wheel and took the stamp off the paddle returning it to a handle. I then stamped it in each corner of the card

Using the Clarity brushes I brushed green ink around the edge of the card and then matted and layered it onto red then green pearlescent card

Then I attached it to a 6 x 6 card blank. I found a little wooden heart which I coloured red and then heat embossed with 2 layers of UTEE. I attached this to the centre of the card!

Here's the finished card

Hope you enjoyed today's Blog post. Please let me know what you think!
