Pumping Heart 'cause I Miss You

This Sunday has been amazing eventhough we had a few short showers. But I have been gardening today for the first time this year. Had my father pop by to give our lawn tractor a pep talk and in return he got lunch served. Mother-in-law had given us some spring flowers yesterday, so they had to be planted, the lawn was moved (after my father left) and weeds have been taken care off (for now - the little bastards keeps coming back!).
So without any guilt I could spend some time at the craft desk this afternoon. And this is the card I made (among others) :o) Based on a sketch from Hero Artws (#3).

First I have stamped the heart using generation stamping. It can in some cases also be called shadow stamping but they way I have done it, it looks as if the heart pumps or flutters.

The background is created using two border stamps from Mama Elephant. I have kept it rather simple (as always) and chosen only basic colours black, grey and red.

The last touch to the card are a few of my homemade enamel dots in red. You can find a tutorial for it here on my blog.

With my card I am participing in the following challenges:

That might be all for today. You never know ;o)

  9. Hi Pia. Awesome card ... love the white, gray, black and red - classic color combo. Your chevron dotted background is so fun and I love the way you've stamped the heart so that it's "pumping" :) Thanks for joining us at ATCAS!
