Hey there, I was able to find some time this morning to work on one of the last cards for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive through Splitcoast Stampers.  To be honest with you, this one had me shaking in my boots!  Patty's challenge, It Touches All of Us, is to create a pink collage.  Yikes, right?

I have never done this technique before but hey, I lived through it!  Actually, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.  I used a wonderful set from Our Craft Lounge called Love Notes.  This is another one that I'm sad to see retire!  I started by rubbing an embossing buddy all over my white card stock then stamping hearts and flourishes randomly with VersaMark then embossing them with clear embossing powder. 

A Stamp-a-ma-jig was used to line up and stamp the script in black and the word "love" was stamped randomly in dark pink.  The entire thing was sponged with light pink, cut into 1 1/4" squares then dark pink was sponged on the edges.  A circle was cut then a heart was punched from a sticky note to use as a reverse mask.  The mask was taped into place, sponged with light then dark pink and the script was stamped over the top.  The mask was removed and the words "Love You" was stamped in dark pink across the entire image.  While the circle was still in the die, light pink was sponged around the outside. 

This project includes the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew ~ Fallin' for You
Heart Song Inspirations ~ Embossing and/or 3 or More Layers
