Card Captain day 1: Art with a heart

This week you will see a lot of Michael Strong stamps on my
cards, for I am card captain on the Enjoy Michael Strong group.
This means I will share 5 cards for inspiration. One card a 
day until Friday.

I will try to make some simple cards you all can  case
with any stamp and not to much materials.

For this card you start making the red stripe
by using two post-it notes and leaving a
2 inch gap.

With candied apple oxide distress ink I colored the
2 inch gap between the post-it notes.

Before removing the post-it notes I added 
a couple of drops of water.

Dab the drops with a paper towel.

The sentiment (by Penny Black) is added on
the strip with my misty, to make sure it is on straight.

With Mike's mini heart stamp embossed 
with gold embossing powder the card is finished.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!

Hetty, your card is so beautiful! Thanks for sharing your technique and the photos. I love how you used the drops of water on the sponged area! And how you masked off the center of the card! Mike's embossed hearts are perfect and so is the sentiment!
