Eureka! Stamps challenge

Today starts new challenge on the 
This week the theme is 
"Anything Goes"
I decided to make a Valentine with 
Lg. Filagree Heart (#24601)
I made the background with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink
(watch for a tutorial in early February on this technique)
I stamped the heart with VersaMark ink 
and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I then inked over it with the same Distress ink as the background.
The embossing resists the ink and shows up beautifully.
You can see the embossing clearly in the picture below.
I love the shiny-ness of it!
I fussy cut the heart, adhered it to white card stock and then fussy cut it again.
I used foam tape to give it a bit of dimension on the card.
Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have been inspired in some way.
Pop on over to the 
 to get all the particulars about the challenge and I hope you will join in the fun.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
