Love Hearts


It's a new month at CASE Study, and we get to case the fabulous Wida who creates the most gorgeous cards - girly but trendy and edgy.  Here's her first inspiration card:


I inked the emboss side of a grunge spots embossing folder with Weathered Wood Distress Ink, spritzed with water and pressed the card onto the ink.  Then I inked the deboss side of the folder with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, spritzed and pressed card onto that.  So I ended up with positive and negative prints of the same design in different colours.  I cut two hearts (Sizzix) from the pink panel and layered them onto the panel, added a bit of stitching and a sentiment, and tied it with some baker's twine.

I'm also entering this into Virginia's View - Stitching,

  16. Shirley, this is simply BEAUTIFUL! I love the design, colors, & how you used the embossing-folder technique! (I've been noticing Karen's cards using this same technique.) I'm inspired to try it.
