Love Heart and more...

 My friend and fellow angel, Christine, loves digi images and even created some background paper for us to play with! Well, I printed her designs on pink cardstocks and am having a ball!  I'm also using a technique I learned on Technique Junkies and have shown before called Neutral Shadows. Are you ready?  I am using a retired stamp set called I {Heart} You...


I punched the cool "background" paper with my Giga Jumbo Scalloped Circle punch.  I made a rather simple card as I didn't want any more "distractions" from the design.  The stamps are inked with Versamark then white embossed before adding the Toile Pink PH ink.






Here's a close-up of the card center. I'm finding out that if you purchase a very inexpensive stencil brush that it will fall apart quickly! I may have to try some Q-tips or something similar.  TAC does have some stipple brushes but the one I have just didn't work that well, the image was too faint.  I also used foam mounting tape under the punched scallop circle and the heart for some dimension.

I am working on another Valentine using this technique.  I have a class today teaching a Shutter Album. I haven't yet finished it but that's because I need to print some pics....   And I have some other projects that need to be finished.  Do you have this problem???

I also want to thank those wonderful people who have been comnmenting on my posts. I really appreciate it! Got a couple great ideas to try and more! Thanks!!

Nice! I plan on doing something with her freebie too, but I'm on the road for work. Your card turned out wonderful!

Grand simple is more technique so well employed in pastel papers.. . . you go, girl!
Is that digi paper available? It is a great font already (DH likes this one) to punch, fold and glue using any cs color. Great possibilities.
Keep Looking UP!
