Lots of Hugs

Making Valentine cards is my second favorite, after Christmas cards.  It gives you the chance to be girly and romantic.  My card today is for the current monthly challenge at Hero Arts.  I embossed the Floral Brocade stamp in clear and colored with alcohol inks.  I like the result, but for the life of me I can not remember what inks I used.  When I usually use this type of technique, I get all artsy and messy and tend to go with the flow. I really need to start writing this kind of information down for future use.

Here is a close up....

I like to make a custom greeting with all those cute little stamps that come with the clear sets.

Paper: Scraps
Ink:  Versamark, Versafine, Vintage Sepia and Tim Holtz distress and alcohol inks
Stamps:  Hero Arts
Dies/Punches:  Cuttlebug embossing folder, Spellbinders tag and die, and Fiskars corner rounder
Other:  Making Memories ribbon, clear embossing powder and heart charms
