All You Need is Love

Working my way through my NBUS (Never Before Used Stamps) I was re reading some of the Clarity project sheets that came with them.  I was struck by this project by Barbara Gray using Club stamp #88 from February 2014 which is when I first joined the Clarity New Design Club for stamps.  I decided to copy it with an addition at the end.

Brayer Lettuce and Steam Adirondack inks onto a piece of A5 Clarity coated card.
Spritz a piece of cling film with water and lay face down onto the card.  Scrunch it up and leave for at least 10 minutes to dry.
In the meantime, add #88 club stamp to a piece of Theuva card in Nocturne Versafine Clair and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
Colour the background with a Cool Aqua ProMarker.
Go round the edges with a Lime Zest ProMarker, mat onto black card and trim leaving a narrow border.
Remove the cling film, and buff up the background with a paper towel.
Trim the background to 20cm x 13.8cm and add to the front of an A5 black card blank.
Add the topper.
To finish, go round the edge of one of Barbara's Words stickers with a Marine ProMarker, mat onto black card and trim leaving a narrow border.  Add the sentiment to the card.
I thought the words sticker made the perfect finishing touch as they were not available when Barbara first designed this project.
