Sweet Hearts

Monday, April 22, 2013

Good Morning
Did you have a good weekend?
I had some time to play in my art journal and also make a few cards.
One of my art journal pages has 60 punched hearts on it, so I kind of had hearts on the brain.
A few of the hearts are stamped first in a solid ink color.  Then they are stamped over top with a scrolly heart in versamark ink and finally heat embossed in gold. 
 My paper was a bit wavy after the heat embossing
so I wanted to emboss it with a folder to flatten it out and add some texture. 
 I wasn't sure how the gold embossing would react to the process. 
 I thought it might crack, but it worked just fine.

Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow with a new ColourQ challenge!
