Love is all around - Natalie and Amy challenge

Hello! This month's challenge over at Natalie and Amy's is 'Love is all around' and means that your creation needs to include at least one heart. Here is mine and I sincerely apologise for the terrible picture but this was the best of 10! The light is so poor at the moment that it's difficult not to move the camera hence all the fuzziness. I am on the look out for some cheap desk lamps so I can try and set up a makeshift photobox but I can't find any at the moment :(


To make this card I stamped the Kaisercraft crackle stamp onto black card with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Pearl Wow embossing powder. I then stamped the Love heart onto gold card with black versafine and cut it out. Then covered it in crackle accents and left it to dry over night. Finally, I matted and layered it on black and gold then finished it off with some brads and lace from my stash.

Thank you for looking :)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Crafter's Cafe - Use ribbon/lace
Everybody Art - Hearts
Sweet Stamps - Lace and hearts
Make it Monday - Always anything goes

  14. Great card. I will have to try heat embossing someday, but my former activity staff said that would get the powder all over me.
