The way's to use it challenge this last thursday was to be music inspired. and since this IO sentiment had followed me home last tuesday it seemed like fate kwim? this is stamped with versamark and heat embossed with teal shabby enamel from Stampendous on a piece of watercolor paper that had been previously colored with some derwent art bars. the edges were outlined with an staedtler tri plus fineliner (brown) oh, and these pens are cool the barrel is triangular shaped so they are easy to hold.
The finished card is 6" square in real life the top watercolor pieces are up on pop dots over the tied chocolate hemp string layer.
and it was still daylight and I have been sorting through stamps since I had all the boxes out of the closet since Christmas ( not kidding) the weight of the stamp boxes was pulling the brackets out the wall and the boxes were sliding off and hitting the floor and cracking. so, I took them all off the shelf and stacked them all over the place upstairs until hubs could (getaroundtoit) fixing this. ( it has since been fixed) so anyways. the Heart is a really old one from a SU set called love always and its heat embossed with some blush Zing! powder on a sheet of basic grey printed paper. this was masked and the definition was over stamped (as was the border below that is not really visible under the lace) and this was sprayed with some heidi swapp color shine (pink color)
the lace is vintage, the flowers are from wild orchid crafts, there is some chocolate hemp string through the buttons and this one ended up boxed.
