love conquers all

image from "Marie's Garden pt 2" design sheet
background paper "Steampowered" from Steampunk Paper kit
all from Gecko Galz
designed in CAP2
100% digital
From the design sheet, I cut out my chosen image, placed it onto a blank page and using a heart shaped digi punch, punched out the main bit of the image, I was just going to use that but then decided to use the 'off cut' as well and started layering the page up till I got the look I wanted. I altered the transparency of the background sheet to give it a faded look. Added a red square which I then placed behind the main heart to matt & layer a contrast, the shade of red was taken from the large rose so everything matched.
I tried to match the hand writing on the image as best I could and faded the words a little bit to make them look worn 7 faded into the paper.

I wanted to embellish it a little as it looked quite plain around the edges but couldn't find any embellishments I liked so I ended up matt & layering the image and reducing it in shape to fill the gap.
Another idea to fill the gap would be to write a sentiment or little poem to whoever the card was meant to be for.
If my printer was good, I would print it all as is, but if I do make this into an actual card I will just use the images as my ink tends to be a bit darker than the appearance on screen. And there would be a doily involved.  (*lol*)
