Dazzling Diva #62

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Wow!  It's Wednesday already??? Where does the time go?  Bringing you another Dazzling Diva Challenge today...perfect for those last minute Valentines:


And here's where my mind went:


The background has been stamped in Versamark.  Next comes a die cut circle of designer paper.  And now for the fun stuff *grin*.  I cut a strip of Dark Rich Chocolate craft metal and embossed it.  Then I sanded it slightly and added some alcohol ink highlights. The craft metal works so well with so many products, and alcohol ink is definitely a great one to play with!   Next, the heart has been die cut in Scarlet Red and over it is a computer generated sentiment.  Since the wood is so prominent in the inspiration picture, just had to use that silly sentiment *big grin*.  A few little wooden hearts and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Recollections kraft paper and MME Lost & Found Two Blush
Ink:  Versamark
Stamps:  Impression Obsession Corduroy 
All the other stuff:  Add a Little Dazzle Dark Rich Chocolate craft metal, Add a Little Dazzle Scarlet Red craft metal, Big Shot Pro, Tim Holtz Woodgrain embossing folder, Butterscotch alcohol ink, Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Round die, Verve Jotted Heart A Cut Above die, Studio Calico wood veneer hearts

Craft metals are available here, or you can click the link in the right column:
