On to the January news from Close To My Heart. I have told you about the Whooo's Your Valentine special and even how you can get that free! Now I want to tell you about the Stamp of the Month, Happy Valentine's. Hang on to your hat, cuz it's a beauty!
This set is filled with beautiful roses and delicate fonts. And who wouldn't want a set that has the single word "smitten"? This set is fabulous for using with our Alcohol Markers, but today I want to show you how lovely it can be using cocoa pigment ink.
I used a sketch from Fetch a Sketch for this card, and I started out by stamping the large bunch of roses with cocoa pigment ink. Even though it is no longer available, I used Florentine paper for matting because it was just so perfect with these delicate roses. I sponged color ready seam binding ribbon with creme brulee ink, and added a couple of foundry pins. It would be very easy to color the ribbon with a creme brulee marker, too.
So what do you think? It's a must-have, isn't it? Watch for many more examples this month - I love this stamp, and I'll show you many ways to use it.
Of course, I have my four monthly club nights this month, but I have some other things going on, too.
