Happy Early Valentine's Day!

I couldn't wait for this new Hero Arts cling stamp to come in. Ever since I saw Donna Mikasa use it, I knew I had to have it (thanks for the inspiration Donna!). I had some difficulty using it with my distress inks as she did- will have to try again later. Instead I decided to try embossing it and then using my distress inks over it in an emboss resist technique. Went with gold embossing powder (Queen's gold- my favorite!) and then Red Barn distress ink over it. I love the results- looks very fancy schmancy. Since it was so fancy looking, decided to keep it simple and just layer my new nesties over it and accent with some crystals. I did one more card using this background stamp that I will share with you soon. Totally different look just by using different colors! Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to! Have a great week! Supplies:
  • Sentiment: Denami Designs
  • Background stamp- Hero Arts
  • Queen's Gold- Ranger
  • Crystals- Kaisercraft
  • Distress ink- Ranger
  • Labels nestiblilities- Spellbinders
