Using Dies or punches is the kick off point for Simons Wednesday challenge. I used Viva’s InkaGold paste in Rose Quartz on my background. I just used my finger and rubbed it all over. Next step: A striped Ranger Stencil place over the top and a slightly damp baby wipe (squeeze it out well) was rubbed over the top, lifting the color from the open spaces. I cut my hearts with Spellbinders dies. I used just a light spritz of Dylusions spray color in BubbleGum to give some interest to the embossed heart and tie it to the background. I used a piece of acrylic that I embossed with MFT border dies to put a cross stitch border on the acrylic panel. Stamped with Versa Mark and attached with small touches of adhesive right along the very edge of the acrylic. Thanks for stopping by.
