Life is tough, but so are YOU

Sunday July 2, 2017
 

 
Few months ago I bought this AWESOME amazing background stamp by Hero Arts.. This stamp is so awesome and so detailed.. It's the background you are looking at.. YUP that is not designer paper.. it's a stamp. 
 I took black card stock and versa mark ink stamped it and then added Simon Says white embossing powder. Heated it..
Now when I first thought to use this stamp I was just going to stamp it, emboss it then paint certain areas with my H2O paints.. BUT I saw this and thought no way was I going to mess this up with paints. I don't know that it would even work or look good.. guess maybe some time I will try it but not now.. this is too gorgeous as is..
OK so I love black/white and red together.. So found a great red card stock and die cut the YOU from My Favorite Things.. I cut it twice and layered it.. I then used one of the many sentiments from the same set at MFT.. and heat embossed it in the same white.. Layered it over the YOU.. It's done. So simple and so pretty.. Well I think it is.
