Love Tattoo


This stamp always reminds me of a tattoo, so I thought I'd enclose it in a heart and add an arrow to make it a 3D tattoo.  I pencilled a heart outline on some cream card stock, then smeared on some Memento Rose Bud.  When that had dried I stamped the Dreams then cut round the heart lines.  I squidged some Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet Distress inks onto the card using the edge of the pad, then mounted the heart on top.  Added a Tim Holtz Industrious sticker, some sequins and a heart border.  It's for a whole raft of challenges, so here we go - and hopefully I won't bust like I did on the last one :)

CASE Study, inspiration provided by Danielle:
(the border, the arrow, the large font sentiment, the sequins).

And last but certainly not least, because it's Neat & Tangled stamps that I've used, Little Tangles Celebrate Love.

ETA:  I've just realised it also fits this week's CAS(E) This Sketch:
