Pinkle's Challenge & Papertake Weekly Challenge

I've not done any crafting for a few days as I've been busy with one thing and another.

Anyway, here are two things I've made for The Sunday Stampers Challenge set by Pinkle http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/ The challenge was to use inky stampy techniques to make a card, ATC or a tag and this weeks theme was love.
Also the theme on Papertake Weekly Challenge was to make somethihng with a heart on it, so these were perfect.

The first thing I made is a card - I used red cardstock and the actual card design/fold was taken from January's Craft Stamper Magazine. I used a versamark ink pad, and stamped the free stamp which came with the magazine, randomly on the left front of the card and then embossed it using gold embossing powder. I put gold mirror card behind the front fold (hope that makes sense). Then I stamped an Anna Griffin heart stamp on a piece of red card again using the versamark ink pad and again embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then matted and layered it onto gold mirror card. The word "Love" I then stamped and embossed and matted onto red and gold card.




Next I made an ATC - I used some alcohol inks to make the background and then I stamped the heart in black ink and coloured it using a distress ink pad. I cut it out and edged it with a Krylon gold leafing pen. Again I used the free stamp and stamped "Love" on the bottom of the ATC and I added a lilac heart gem over the letter "o". Finally I used foam pads to mount the heart onto the ATC and edged it with the Krylon gold leafing pen.
