Today's hearts are all about distress inks and stains. And let's get right to the closeups, shall we?
Heart 11: Pearlized Distress Resist, watercolor paper from Canson (Aquarelles Arches), stamp from PTI, ink from Tim Holtz (distress), heart die from Spellbinders. Pearlized water was made up from Pearl-Ex mica powder, water, and a few drops of gum arabic as a binder. Seems to work well as a substitute for Perfect Pearls.
Heart 12: Distress Stamping (+ Felt Rose), stamp from Stampin Up, card stock from stash, ink from Tim Holtz (distress). I had no felt, nor did I have the rose die, so I substituted a Prima flower colored with distress inks.
Heart 13: Stamping With Water + Metallic Paper, white card stock from stash, stamp from Stampin Up, ink from Tim Holtz (distress). I did not have the pumice colored distress ink to make the metallized embellishment, so I punched a flower (Martha Stewart) out of sticky-backed aluminum, rounded it with a ball burnisher, colored it with Copic markers, and glued a few black seed beads in the center.
Heart 14: Color Blend Stamping + Distress Dots, white card stock from stash, stamp from Stampin Up, inks from Tim Holtz (distress), blue crystals from stash.
And there you have it--Row 3!
Thanks for looking, and have a nice day!
