Love is in the air with Creative Expressions

Love is definitely in the air as Valentines Day approaches, and in keeping with the romantic season I've made this love ATC which could also be used as a tag on a present, or just a little love note with a poem on the back.

The gorgeous heart stamp and the sentiment is from the wonderful Hearts Entwined stamp set from Creative Expressions 


 For the heart I stamped it on chipboard then cut it out. Then I pressed the heart shape into a Ranger's Perfect Medium pad and shook some Blue Raspberry Aurora Cosmic Shimmer Embossing powder over the top and melted it with a heat gun. I repeated the process again with another layer of the Blue Raspberry Aurora embossing powder. 


Then I repeated again using an ultra thick clear embossing powder this time. While the clear embossing powder is still warm ink up the heart with black Archival Ink and press it into the melted embossing powder.
Then you get this lovely 3D effect of the heart shapes within the heart.


Do you know any love poems that can go on the back of an ATC?
Naughty one's are very welcome too :)

Have a great weekend
Michelle xxxxx
