(2021 c006) Radiating Love

I used one of my favorite techniques For the background I again had fun following Jennifer McGuire’s Die Cut Letterpress Technique video to create the background.  I created the DIY Letterpress by cutting 3 pieces of heavy cardstock with Kat Scrappiness Star Fusion  and glued together.  Then I covered the top with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white EP so that I can apply ink for letterpressing and clean off and use again and again. I covered this DIY stamp with Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger and placed white cardstock on top & ran it through my die cutting machine to press/print. To give a radiating burst I sponged Versamark Ink  in radiating sun like rays and heat embossed with Kaleidoscope Embossing Powder by Stampendous. See the picture below to see a little better.

The heart was created using  TONIC STUDIOS Traditional Heart Die Set 1459e for the outer cut and the center was cut out using a very old and discontinued die set called Swirled Heart by Spellbinders. The link will show you other hearts they still carry. Love was cut using Love Stamp & Cut by Hero Arts . The lower panel edge was cut with older sets also from Spellbinders called Classic Tripple Petals & Classic Tripple Scallops, also retired.
