Key to My Heart

Hello again y'all.  Thanks for stopping in.  The card I have for you today was fun to make.  I got in there and got my hands all inky.  I enjoyed making this one.

I started out with a Gray  card base from SU.  I added a Pink panel from Recollections.  The script background is from QKR Stampede.  I sized it to 4.25" x 5"  and trimmed it down once I printed it.  I used quite a few different DI to distress it.  (Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge, Broken China, Walnut Stain, Tea Dye)  I just kept adding layers of ink until I liked the way it looked.  The heart, key and sentiment are from Shelly's Images.  I used a BIC marker to color in the heart and key then started layering on the DI.  I tied a piece of pink ribbon to the key and slid it through the key hole in the heart.  I matted the sentiment on the same pink card stock after inking it with DI Vintage Photo.  I like the distressed, vintage look this card has.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Come back now, ya hear!  God bless y'all.
