Swirled Hearts and So Suzy Stamps

This month, at So Suzy Stamps, we are shining the spotlight on the featured stamp of the month; Swirly Hearts.  Several of the design team will be showcasing their take on this romantic stamp, and you can take a look at each of their lovely projects by visiting their links at the end of this post.

My project was created using distress inks, ribbon, my Misti and "icing".   Scroll down for a few quick tips....

First, lightly spritz watercolor paper with water.  Spray on Ranger Cracked Pistachio Mist and tip paper.  Dry with heat emboss tool.  Blot if necessary.

Fill in remaining space using Ranger Hickory Smoke using same steps as above.  Use the Misti Stamping Tool to line up the Swirly hearts.  I inked only the outer edge of the center heart, as I wanted to fill in with more Cracked Pistachio.  Stamp at least 3 times to get full coverage.  Use a water brush to fill in additional Cracked Pistachio ink in center heart.  Add "icing" by adding Ranger Stickles glitter glue in Frosted Lace.  Allow to dry or use heat emboss tool to dry.

Add a ribbon focus for that extra dreamy, romance factor.  I almost forgot to mention.... I masked another sentiment, Love and Happiness, to add the wording "with love" just below my heart.  A few glued sequins and we are done.  Hand this beauty over to your loved one and score bonus points for handmade awesomeness!
