ID: Gesso/Tissue - XO - Love U Bunches card
5"w x 7"h

Created: August 1, 2010

Another card that has a background made with Gesso on Tissue paper technique, this one done with black gesso (coming soon in Nitty Gritty gallery). even though these I believe are basically graphic design element stamps, they reminded me of an X & an O (Kisses and hugs), hence the reason for the hearts and quote.
I think it makes a great man card too. Not too mushy, but with a little whimsy in it.

I stamped the X & O patterns (gg designs) onto the gesso background with Perfect Medium and embossed with Ranger's lemon Yellow. I cut down the "O's" and mounted them to a cream toned cardstock, then trimmed down to a 2" x 2" square. Cut the "X's" down to the 2" square size as well, but kept them unmounted. Then adhered them to an antique gold metallic cardstock, leaving a very thin border around everything, then layered it onto my light tan card.


Wrote a quote around the edges in a basic monoline hand using a Micron black pen

Quote: Give me that man that is not passion's slave, and I will wear him in my heart's core, Ay, in my heart of heart, as I do thee. William Shakespeare

The hearts are die cut with Sizzix Tipsy Heart die (medium heart) from Shrink Plastic, colored with Tombow and then accented with Prisma colors, medium sized holes punched to mimic a button. Lettering done in reverse on the back, baked to shrink, then tied to the card with 2 ply waxed linen thread.

One button has "Love U" on it, the other has "Bunches"
