DT Herazz Valentines card

I created this Clean and simple Valentines card for Herazz Scrapbooking.


The heart is Spellbinders Classic heart die on white cardstock, stamped with Hero Arts Flourish blackground and embossed with white embossing powder. I then inked with Barn door, Fired brick and Aged mahogany distress inks.  Afterwards misted with perfect pearls and water combo.  The smaller heart was inked with distress inks them I added 3 coats of clear embossing powder.

TIP : make sure you dry the inked surface prior to stamping and adding the embossing powder or else the powder will stick to the inked surface.


I inked the white cardstock with Barn door distress ink, then I stamped with Versamark using Canvas stripe Hero Arts stamp, added clear embossing powder then heat embossed.  Afterwards I inked with Fired brick and Aged mahogany distress inks.

For the final touch, I added pearls, ribbon, lace and twine.

I am entering my card in the following challenges,
