Just a quick share, I made a couple Atc's (Artist Trading Cards) for the mini-challenge over at more than words...the mini-challenge is done on Facebook so you can check it out here or go to their blog...

I love Atc's because I get to use up some scraps (I'm a hoarder of scraps I have two draws full) so between my art journal and ATC's I can make a dent in it LOL

 I used a lot of distress oxides some really cool distress oxide sprays both of these can be found at Scrapsalot Debra carries lots of different colors. I wasn't sure about the sprays but the colors are very vibrant I even used them on the metal butterfly
the first layer was distress oxide inks just added randomly, I knew this was mostly going to be covered up.. then for my second layer, I used molding paste and a couple different stencils to give it some texture. I used my heat tool to make drying time faster. now for the fun part, I took the spray oxides but didn't actually spray then...I unscrewed the top and just dabbed a bit here and there then sprayed with water to move it around..let it get into the nooks and crannies LOL I kept doing this until I was satisfied while it was drying I was trying to narrow down my bits and pieces and trying to figure out how I was going to layer them.

** Done way ahead of time...I have a small container full I made fake enamel dots out of distress ink and clear Nuvo drops

My heart is yours-Happy Valentines day

Happy Valentine's day everyone

I have one last card to share for Valentine's day well I guess you could use it for other things. It's truly the simplest card I've made in a long time and most would consider it clean and simple (sometimes those are the best)

Inks, stamps, and heart die are from Scrapsalot shop
I love the heart prints stamp set from Sugar peas design it had some really cute heats and sentiments, Of course, the imprint one is my favorite. Like I said earlier it's super simple stamped the heart and die cut using the simple heart die from Sugar peas then framed it with two squares with a sentiment under it!

Foil hearts

Who's ready for Valentine's day? I've been working pretty hard to come up with the perfect card for my husband and so far they are all too feminine but I managed to pass the ones I made along to a friend so they won't go to waste 😁 so I thought I would share my latest  Valentine's day card ... look at the beautiful foil...I love how it shines! Gina K's foil mates made it so easy to create my background for my card
