Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 55 - Week of July 9, 2011 I Love You
This is the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for Week 55 beginning July 9, 2011. I made my center design a distressed heart. I stamped the love tag in the middle of the heart - making sure not to ink the frame or the "No. 9" since they would get cut off when I cut out the die. I inked the edges and the embossed heart with Ranger Distress Ink - Worn Lipstick. Then I sanded the embossed parts to let the cream color of the paper show through.
For the ribbon side accents I zig zagged an organza wire ribbon and secured it to the back of the heart. To make the window on the tag in the center I placed an oval die inside the center of the Fancy Phrases Tag and ran it through my die cut machine.
When I started with the heart I automatically went into pink mode. I didn't want to over do it so I threw in alot of neutral - which is unusual for me, but I am happy with the end result. I hope you like this one - as always I thank you for your kindness and inspiration. I hope you have a great week!
