Isn't it romantic?

Here's another card using an image from the new Hanna Stamps set, Passport. The layer was cut to size and embossed 4 times with copper embossing powder. I quickly inked up the eiffel tower with Stazon Jet Black after heat embossing for the 4th time. Stamp as usual and just leave the stamp on the hot embossed layer for a minute or 2. It will come right off and not damage the stamp at all. The edges of the completed layer were sponged with black Stazon as well and I added thin organdy and heart charms. The DP is by the Paper Studio and was distressed with a toothbrush inked with Versafine Vintage Sepia. I brushed the edges of the cocoa card base too. The rub on in the top left corner is by K&Company and the sentiment is a sticker by 7 Gypsies.

  6. Shelly this is gorgeous! I've always been afraid to stamp onto embossed "backgrounds" fearing it will ruin the stamp...but now I MUST try it! I LOVE your outcome! And IS romantic! :D
