Smile you're awesome - Creative with Stamps #23

Thursday February 15, 2018
So did you have a great Valentines day?..
It's our anniversary.. We had a nice celebration.
We're back with a Mid month reminder for the February challenge at Creative with Stamps #23 the theme is HEART
Note: CWS challenges do not have many "Guidelines", but please read and follow the few we do have to be eligible to win.
This is my card. I started by using a Great Impressions wood block stamp and Stampin up ink and stamping the stamp all over the card. (the stamp is a group of intertwined hearts) well it didn't look too good when I was done because there was just too much white... So took out a redish Ranger ink and went over the card.. well the red wasn't red enough more coral looking so then I grabbed some purple Ranger ink and went over the card.. Now you can hardly see the Stampin up inked hearts so I went back over the card with black inked hearts.. I liked it better. I then die cut the My Favorite Things "Smile" in a pink that looks like the background color. I layered it two times and added it to the card front. I added Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the letters. I couldn't find the dot for the i so I colored a half pearl with a copic and added it. I heat embossed the MFT sentiment and added it to the card. I like the monochromatic look.. Hope you are inspired and if you need more mojo head over to CWS blog and see the DT creations.

I am charmed by your description of the process - it seems that if you got everything right the first time, it wouldn't be nearly as pretty! Thank you for your participation in the HeArtful Stamping Challenge!
