be still my ink smooshing hearts

Howdy peeps!

Popping in quickly today to share a make from a little bit ago - we were in the snow in northern Italy for a sun and snow-filled week before I headed off to spend two weeks with my Dad in cold and sometimes snowy Michigan - that made use of a fabulous die cut panel sent to me by the lovely, happy dancing Bev B.

Cornish Heritage Farms Alphabet BG
Distress Inks
embossing powder

First off I stamped the die cut panel with the background stamp. Then I backed it with an ink-smooshed BG. Heat embossed the "HI" section of the BG stamp onto a black snipet and mounted the panels askew to a cardbase. Voila! Love that dimension and interest!

I'm off to play at:
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Texture
Die Cut Divas - Anything Goes
Papercraft Challenges - Bingo - I've got heat embossing, text and no PP
Happy Little Stampers - Anything goes with Dies April

That's just so lovely. The text and the hint of colour behind it and the texture of the half due cut hearts make it a card you really do want to touch xxx
