Rusty heart

Stampotique Designers Challenge # 82 focuses on  die cuts and punches and Wicked Wednesday has chosen ‘Gothic Love’ as this fortnight’s theme. I really enjoyed making this rusty heart ATC:


I used wrinkle free distressing to create the background and overstamped it with a script stamp (Darkroom Door). I stamped the Stampers Anonymous mosaic stamp with Brilliance ink on a torn piece of crimson paper.  I used a Tim Holtz mini heart die to cut the shape out of golden cardstock, which I then dry embossed using the cuttlebug ‘clockworks’ folder. Next, I heat embossed the raised parts with copper embossing powder to create a rusty look.

That’s the kind of Valentine’s heart I like, I hope you do too!

    I love how you embossed just the raised part of the heart, a technique I should remember! It gives such a nice extra detail to the card. Same for the embossed sides of the card. 🙂
