Cherub Chasing a Heart

 I made this card while waiting to see Tim's February tag. I used one of Tim's TF embossing folder with one of the stamps from Slight Alterations #60. The image was inked with Festive Berries, stamped on the embossing folder and then embossed.
After it was embossed I finished distressing it with iced spruce ink. Cut n' Dry pen nibs were used to paint flowers using festive berries ink pad.
Right before cleaning the red ink from the stamp, I decided to spray it with water and stamp on white paper. The ticket die was used with the inked paper and then stamped with Tim's ticket from Love Struck #82.
Red mat board was used to die cut the cherub and heart. All images were applied using Glue n' seal adhesive.

I didn't notice the wording in the inked embossed background piece until I scanned it, I'm going to ask Tim if those letters were suppose to be visible. Looks like a C A K Y N T in the center near Cherub's left hand. I guess when it's called Slight Alterations he means it. Near his right hand more imperfections. 


  1. Sometimes paper companies put a watermark in their paper that shows up in photo like that or when you color it...makes me upset if it is noticeable. I have the best parchment paper in a stack of 50 and right in the center is their watermark, so I print all around it and cut around it because I don't want to see! Probably what happened here.
    Adorable Valentine for a lucky person!

  2. Anita, thanks for the comments! you can see the letters in the stamp when you put ink on the stamp. This was first time to use this stamp.
