love you forever

I am loving the new My Mind's Eye papers by Andrea Victoria. They are a gorgeous combination of yellow, grey, black, and damask. Gorgeousness! Can I possibly say gorgeous one more time? Sorry! :) They were perfect papers to mix with the Papertrey Ink stamps, Damask Designs. The circle that holds the sentiment was cut with circle Nestabilities. To get the ink on the outside embossed edge, I placed a smaller circle die, with the cardstock still in it, and directly applied the ink. Make sure and push the ink pad directly down or you may get some bleeding. I did get some, but not much. I think I will try this idea again with Copic airbrushing...
Hope you had a great weekend! thanks for stopping by!
