Technique Junkies Masculine Love Card

Hey Junkies!

It’s The Crafty Nurse here with a bit of inspiration featuring one of the January Release stamps from Technique Junkies called “Messy Love #S744”. I wanted to use this stamp in a masculine way by using muted colors and a simple design.

I began by stamping “Messy Love”  with versamark ink over some MyMinds Eye design paper then clear heat embossed the heart pattern over the design paper.  Once heat set, I then took Distress Ink in Ground Espresso and went over the entire piece buffing with a baby wipe to remove any lingering ink over the clear embossing. There is a similar technique in the Artistic Effects CD using Distress Stains.  I finished off with the “Forever and A Day” stamp set from last years release.

We all need some masculine love cards this time of year so try out this cool technique with some of your favorite Technique Junkie Love stamps.

Happy Inking!!
