Hero Arts L-O-V-E


Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a shabby chic Valentine created with the amazing Hero Arts Love by Lia and Hero Arts Romeo & Juliet stamp sets. There are lots of layers and lots of ink!

I created the watercolored background with Scarlet and Brilliant Red Brusho powders. I wanted a few red heat-embossed elements and don’t have any red embossing powder, so the L-O-V-E sentiment and three hearts from the Love by Lia stamp set were stamped in Versamark over top of red ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This is an awesome trick you can use to make it appear like you have virtually any color embossing powder!


I went through a couple ephemera packs and pulled out some elements that I wanted to use, distressed the edges, and started laying them down along with the stamped and embossed elements. When I had them where I wanted them, I started adhering them – some were adhered flat and some have foam tape under them for a little dimension. I splattered watered-down Walnut Stain distress ink over the entire panel and added some Crystal Drops.


I stamped a sentiment and more hearts from the Romeo & Juliet stamp set on the inside panel, hand-drew a couple wavy lines down the left side and distressed the edges, then layered the panel on black cardstock.

Scrappy hugs!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
