I’ll admit…I was stumped for a while trying to figure out the non-traditional part for a guy. Then I remembered I had this wonderful Marble Feathers Background and I thought if I brayered a background w/ a non-traditional rainbow of colors then stamped it on top, it might just work. After I did that, I die cut the large rectangle then the large Heart out of it. I hand cut a slightly larger heart out of black to border the marbled heart.
The Love was die cut twice out of white & once out of black to shadow it, then the 2 white die cuts stacked on top for dimension before the black cut was added a little lower. The U and arrow were done the same way (except reversed colors) and added below the heart.
Here’s a little look at the inside. I used some of the left over marbled background and the Mini Scroll Heart die.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
