Hugs and Kisses

Hi Everyone,

I am playing in the February challenge over at Joy Clair - shades of red is the requirement! Since Valentin's Day is coming up I decided to stick with that theme:


I used on of my favorite Joy Clair stamp set for this card:
Its called Hugs and Smiles

I inked it up with various distress inks and spritzed it with water and stamped it into opposite corners. Took a piece of plastic and stamped the rest of the ink from my stamp on it, spritzed again and dabbed it in between my stamped images. Let it dry. Added the heat embossed sentiment and a die cut ampersand (Papertrey) as well as gold thread.


Linking up with:
Joy Clair - Shades of Red
AAA Cards - Love
The Paper Players - Valentine
HLS watercolor challenge - used a little die


Happy Smooshing and Spritzing!
