Waltzingmouse Challenge #96

Hi Scrappers,

I took out my ancient heat gun this week, gave it a good dust and used it for this week's challenge at Waltzingmouse stamps. Check out the current sketch here on the blog.

I inked an embossing folder, blended a few different colours over the top and ended with some gold embossing powder. I wish I hadn't used the reddish brown ink though - the colour that came out is a bit yucky and I had no papers to match! The heart's are a nestie die on which I stamped the tiny scroll from the Very Vintage Labels 4 set and covered them in dimensional magic.  Not sure what occasion I'm going to use this one for - wedding, golden anniversary or an engagement card perhaps?

Anyway, I'm off to try that inking and embossing technique again - this time in different colours!

Thanks for stopping by,
