At first glance, I thought Corazon might be a zombie of sorts. The way her hands are posed is a bit creepy to me. My attempts at prettying her up still make me think she walks with the dead. Hmmm. The results of my google search on Corazon suggest that the word means heart or can be a Spanish term of endearment for Darling. Ahhh, perfect!
I masked Corazon then used Tsukineko Brilliance Rocket Red ink to stamp an Inkadinkado script background. I also added a Tattered Angels Vintage Seasons Timeless Romance cancelation stamp on the right and the word love barely shows. I tried to heat emboss the dazzling ink with clear embossing powder but the effect is minimal. Here's a closer view of my very softly, Copic-filled image as printed on Kraft cardstock . . .
I've die cut my image using a Spellbinders Classic Oval Large and matted her with a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval.
American Crafts Love Many Splendored patterned paper, layered with Bazzill red and kraft cardstock forms my twisted easel card. Martha Stewart's Punch Around the Page Eyelet Lace provides a delicate border. Dots of Stickles Xmas Red add some bling between the Fiskars handheld heart punches. A Martha Stewart Lace Heart edge punch adds a grounding border to rest my image. A 3/8" Jo-Ann's holiday metallic red ribbon bow adds beautiful sheen to a My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally "Best" pin and Jolee's boutique dimensional stickers rose flower cluster. The word Darling is from a My Mind's Eye 2010 Lost and Found Madison Avenue "Pretty" stamps set.
QuicKutz love letter, locket and key die cuts provide a loving accent cluster. My handy Dymo label maker adds an appropriate sentiment. McGill pine branches add the perfect vintage filler.
Here's a view of my twisted easel card, open and ready for display, showing how I've used Rick St Dennis' Corazon to share vintage-looking, loving wishes . . .
