Valentine Challenge Journey - day 4

Hi there and welcome to day 4 .... Welcome Deborah, glad you decided to join us; it's still not too late to play catch up just Click here for the details (And remember those lovely prize packs!)

So here we go everyone

For the ATC, I stamped my image in fired brick distress ink just over halfway across (I used a stamp from The Artistic Stamper (Garden plate) Using a clear embossing stamp pad cover the ATC and add clear powder over the whole surface. Tap the back to get rid of some of the powder (not too much though!)
Heat emboss with heat gun and leave to cool. Once it is cool then using walnut stain distress ink and the blending tool rub in all over the tag, it will colour everything that has not been covered by the embossing powder and you end up with a beautiful rusty enamel look! The Y  and flourish are painted silver and when dry, lightly sanded and distress ink to colour the exposed grunge.
From my heart to yours was stamped using stazon and another silver heart to finish....
So there you have day 4, hope you have fun with it!
Be blessed today
