SSS Wednesday Challenge: Touchy Feely

Hey everyone!  Thought I would share with you a fun and simple card I made for the latest SSS Wednesday Challenge!

It has been a hot minute since I've participated in a challenge, but thought this one would be fun!

I wanted to play with my new to me set Tree Hugs from Concord and 9th!  This is such a unique set, and playing with it just once, I can see how you can get addicted to it, and also how you could create some fun masculine cards too!  

I created my card using my favorite white card stock and took the tree image ( that is half of the tree) and stamped it using some Walnut ink from Lawn Fawn.  What is fun about this stamp is you can make your tree as skinny or as wide as you'd like.  I was going for a one-layer card, but yet clean and simple.  I stamped the heart from the set with Lobster ink from Lawn Fawn, and then carefully colored the heart with a R29 Copic Marker.  I, then masked off the sides of my card front getting it close to the edge of the tree, and then I took a little Antique Linen Distress Ink, and added some shading to the tree.

I wanted to add felt to my card ( as it tied into this week's challenge) - but I didn't have any red felt. So, I cut down a piece of white that I had, and took that same R29 Copic and colored my felt.  Once it was dry, I die cut a heart using a Lawn Fawn heart die, as well as die cutting the inside of my stamped heart.  

I stamped the sentiment using the words Love and Hugs from the same stamp set in Lobster ink.  Love this red!  I adhered my felt heart to the inside of my card with some Multi Medium Matte,  and for a final touch added some Wink of Stella to the stamped heart!

Such a fun and different look - one I usually don't do.  

Hope you enjoyed!
