Today's card features yet another of my new digi stamps, this time I have used one of Two Hearts - find them here - I printed out the heart 3 times, then cut them out and coloured them with gold ink. When the ink had dried I covered them with versamark ink and sprinkled them with ultra thick embossing powder and melted it with my heat gun, repeating the process three times before letting the hearts cool. When they had cooled completely I bent them a bit until the UTEE cracked a little. Finally I added some black distress ink to define the edges and the cracks.
To complete my card I cut some black cardstock, covered it with some embossed metallic paper from Southfield Stationers leaving a narrow border, then stamped some old handwriting on to a piece of kraft card, distressed the edges using white ink and then scuffing them with my scissors. I added a length of gold lace sticking a bow at one side and an old metal button at the other. I stuck down my three hearts then stamped a frame in black ink and then a sentiment inside it, these are both from the Lost & Found set by My Mind's Eye. Finally I added a couple of mini brads to finish the whole thing off :o)
