Pure Heart

Hello Crafty Friends! 

Today I want to share something fun that I was inspired to make for the
Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge. 

The theme is "Love is all around us"
You can join or read more HERE

I wanted to create something non-traditional and vintage. 
I knew right away that I wanted to used this heart ad by Tim Holtz.
(It's from the stamps set- ECLECTIC ADVERTS - CMS372)

I stamped it in black memento ink, and colored it with a red alcohol ink marker.

I distressed the focal image with distress ink in gathered twigs, and ground espresso. 

Here you can see the mica glued on the main image using distress collage medium. I also punched the 4 corners and added Tim Holtz hex fasteners.

For the base layer I used Tim Holtz correspondence paper pad. Which I also distressed using the same 2 distress inks. I also added some cord I had on hand. 

I also used layers of Tim Holtz kraft-stock for the bases.

Here it is all finished!
I hope you all enjoy it!


  1. Looove the mica!! Awesome idea❤

  2. Hmm...I don’t know what Mica is. I found Mica School and Mica powder but not sheets of it? Or any detailed info. You know I don’t keep up very well with current products. Ha. But I think your card looks great! I like those hex brads.

  3. Fabulous card and your techniques have made the whole card so vintage. Thanks for joining us at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog.

  4. Love this non-traditional Valentine that is so vintage looking! Thanks for joining the Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge.
