Fingerprint heart card (DIY).
Matt's birthday was last week, so now I can show you all the birthday card I made for him!
To make the marbled heart, I cut a stencil out of paper, taped it to the card, then used an ink pad and my fingers to fill in the shape. I kept on adding fingerprints until it looked how I wanted it too. You could do this with any colors and any shape.
I really like this stenciling technique, and will definitely use it again in the future.
I freehanded the rest of the card. The lettering is done with a fine paintbrush and acrylic paint; the border is fine tipped Sharpie markers.
