(2019 c15) Red, Pink & White Valentine


Background created on white cardstock with Tim Holtz Sizzix Botanical 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder .  I highlighted with Barn Door Distress Inks by Ranger .  The hearts were cut out with TONIC STUDIOS Traditional Heart Die Set 1459e .  The largest was colored with Barn Door, Candied Apple Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger.  Then sprayed with Silver Glitter Dust by Thermoweb.   The pink portions were created using Ranger Alcohol Inks  on the back of previously used PHOTO PAPER.  The lowest, smallest heart was created like the first largest heart with Distress Oxide Ink but instead of spraying with glitter, it was inked with Versamark Ink  & heat embossed with Clear Ranger Embossing Powder  3 times.   The sentiment is from HERO ARTS Love Stamp and Cut DC175.

  5. Love the floral embossed background and sponging of color and the heart is so full of sparkle, and you never take the easy way using glitter paper but your technique makes it even more beautiful and glittery. You really do great things with your oxide inks. Thanks again for sharing your artwork with us at Double Trouble.
