(2019 c16) Falling Hearts


For today’s heart insert I sandwiched the t issue  paper that was colored with Ken Oliver Color Burst (Watercolor Pigment Powder) inside a piece of 3M Transparency Film .  Before embossing the background, (in order to prevent smashing the deep embossing)  I cut one edge with an old Spellbinders Edgeabilities Dies, Classic Edges 1 (it is no longer available, but you can click the previous link to see what they looked like) Background created on white cardstock with Tim Holtz Sizzix Botanical 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder  and then applied (direct to raised parts with ink pad) Candied Apple Distress Inks by Ranger .  The heart was cut out with TONIC STUDIOS Traditional Heart Die Set 1459e .  The left portion of card was too stark white so I cut out tiny hearts from the same sandwiched tissue paper with Hero Arts Valentine and three Hearts fancy dies  for the falling hearts & the word Valentine was cut with same  set. Wishes was cut with Hero Arts DC239 Wishes Stamp & Cut .

To see how it was constructed see this previous post (2019 c13) Coffee Filter ValentineI used JudiKins Diamond Glaze to adhere the tissue to the transparency film instead of the Plaid product today. The inside sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co. Love is a Magical Thing {Nov 2015 Sentiment Kit}.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
