The Project:

I created this card using Authentique Paper's Blissful 6x6 Bundle and the Authentique Paper & Unity Stamp Company co-brand Itty Bitty called "Go With Your Heart".


I stamped on white cardstock using watermark ink, then added black embossing powder. Once the embossing powder was set, I went over the image with chalk inks to give it some extra color.


I love the little hints of pink in the Blissful collection, and I chose inks for the image that would make those hints pop.

Thanks for stopping by today!
