Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop - Hearts and a LIM Sketch
For some reason I was a day behind today and thought this hop was tomorrow. Thank goodness I had both my posts ready to go.
The theme for the monthly blog hop at Papertrey Ink is all about love - more specifically hearts. For this card I am also playing along with Less Is More utilizing their sketch this week.
Using my Heart Prints Dies, I cut out several hearts from a coaster. I then generously applied Scotch clear liquid glue over the surface of the die cut and then dropped 2 -3 drops of Ranger's alcohol ink onto the glue and let these dry. I have used this technique before, heating the tinted glue with a heat gun which will give you a darker and more textured finished product. I stamped the scrolled frame onto my card base and then die cut the hearts out of the center of each. I then popped my glue/inked hearts into the negative space. The sentiment was heat embossed onto black CS with white EP and popped up on 3D foam.
