Love You

This is most likely the most Bling I've ever used on any creation that hasn't been tossed
I'm using Limited Runs New "Cuppa Love". Now I'm not sure if I'm telling the coffee Love you or the person getting this lol but it's full of heart and love :)
I used faded in and then recolored every line to create a more hand drawn image look
plus pottery always has those swirls in the cups. The Smoky heart is embossed but doesn't show very well here

Tip on Colouring your brads I used a marker on them then dipped them in clear embossing powder to
hold the colour in place. I did emboss them 3 times so they have a thicker coat that catches the underside too. This stops the embossing from chipping off if you hit it. They where gold when I started.

    Thanks for sharing your project & creativity with us Nikki! I love the visual texture with the embossed layers, the hounds tooth layer and the bling! I don't usually like a lot of bling - but this one is part of the focal point - and absolutely perfect in your design!
