I Heart U


For my very first project for Time 4 Scrap, we have a color challenge: incorporate Silver or Gold into your project.  Our sponsors for this challenge are Robyn's Fetish and Delicious Doodles.  I've chosen the I Heart U digi by Robyn's Fetish for my tag.



After printing the image a couple of times and printing just the sentiment in the center, I fussy cut out the heart from the scalloped edge.  Silver Lightning embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle was used for the scallop border and Firecracker Red embossing powder was applied to the center heart.   Both of these have glitter mixed in with the embossing powder for a sparkly look.  Using a Memory Box die, I cut out the sentiment separately and applied Velvet Sparkle embossing powder for even more glittery goodness.  

After pop dotting the center heart, I added some red fibers behind the entire piece for more definition.
The tag was then covered with silver foil (aka Reynolds Wrap) and dry embossed with the Hearts M-Bossabilities embossing folder.  I highlighted the swirls and the edges with a Copic marker.

I also added the Hanging Hearts, from Die-Versions, to the top and bottom of the tag and heat embossed it with Silver Lightning and Firecracker Red.



So head on over to Time 4 Scrap and submit your card, tag, ATC, or a Fat page (a 4"x4" card, layout or mini album).  The winner will receive her/his choice of 3 digis.

Anne, Gorgeous card and love how your image turned out with those beautiful colors and the metallic look. For this year I'm going to try and work ahead for my challenges so I'm not always last minute and cleaning OUT my craft room of thing I have not used in years and not to make room for new stuff. Also starting NOW keeping up with comments, I'm so tired of falling behind.
Hugs from Wisconsin, Patricia
