from the heart 39

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, November 10, 2013 @ 10:01 PM |

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's Monday so that means it's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge is a simple one - use ink!

This week, I was inspired to create a tag focusing on creating a heat embossed resist background using Versamark Ink.
Versamark Ink was essential for creating the heart stamped background. I wanted the fun hearts to be the focal point on the tag and really "pop" so I stamped them using Versamark Ink, sprinkled on embossing powder then heat set. This created a fabulous background which I could then build and layer upon.
Now my tag was ready for more layers! I randomly applied various distress stains and gesso. Once dry, I randomly stamped a font / numeric image from Attic Treasures:
Thank you so much for visiting ~ I hope you are inspired to join along in the fun!
Be Sweet ;)

Hi Mona... oooh what fabulous creations you've come up with while I've been AWOL Mona... I can't pick my favourite... but they're all so gorgeously touched with pink which I love to see (have a slight pink addiction!).. apart from the gold one... which is also fab!

I had a few quiet days as my lovely OH had a few days off work.. didn't want to neglect him!

Hugs
