Loving You is so Easy Valentine

Time to play with the Valentine’s Day stamps!  I went back to my stamping roots to create this card with minimal supplies.  The sketch is from the current Unity Stamps Sketch challenge, rotated to fit the stamp set.

All of the stamps are from the Unity Love Is set.  The heart background stamp was stamped three times across the card face in Tsukineko Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  BazzInk Maraschino is swiped over the surface of the card, and a baby wipe is used to remove the ink from the surface of the embossed background.  This technique also gave the card a watercolor feel!  The word heart image is stamped in Tsukineko StazOn Jet Black over the top of the heart embossed background.  I was pleasantly surprised at how nicely the image stamped.  Another scrap of card stock is inked with Maraschino, and stamped with Tsukineko Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The sentiment was die cut with Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 2B to create a neat rounded square.  Two edges are inked and embossed at a time to finish the sentiment.  Searching the stash I found a bit of vinyl “ribbon” with a black pattern to complete the card.  The sentiment is adhered with dimensional foam adhesive.   

This card is entered into the following challenges:
