Clearly In Love

Happy Valentine’s Day, Love Birds! :)

I actually am not a fan of “fake” holidays like this, but what the heck…gives me an opportunity to make another themed card, right? And this one is super cool. I was asked by by super, duper awesomely sweet friend Tiffany Johnson of iheartart to make a card for her Mix-Ability Challenge on SplitcoastStampers (Clear Love). And when Tiff asks? I say “yes!”

I wanted to make my card Valentine-y, but have her Mixed Media theme in mind of using all things CLEAR. I chose to use Wendy Vecchi‘s Clearly for Art Modeling Film. This stuff is amazing to work with. It’s thicker than acetate, but takes alcohol inks like a DREAM. Here’s the card and then I’l explain my process a little:



I used a steel rule die and some smaller thin dies (run through my die cutting machine with a metal shim several times) to cut the film.  I colored the pieces with varying shades of alcohol inks and glued them together with a very sturdy glue.

The little piece at the top is a free-form heart. Which means that it kinda *boings* around. Pretty fun! I cut a thin strip of the modeling film and glued it to the back of the banner hearts and the small heart to accomplish this. I thought it was a fun touch. :)

The whole card has tons of dimension and is super shiny. There’s lots of glitter, glimmer, and color on this. Clearly.

Wishing you all a a VERY Happy Valentine’s Day. From Millan.Net
