OCL #49 - Be Mine!

It’s Friday! Time for another challenge over at The Lounge:


I combined the OCL challenge with the F4A48 challenge of using a sentiment to create your background. 

I used So In Love by Our Craft Lounge. I embossed “be mine” in clear on vanilla and then stamped a few in distress fired brick and embossed them also in clear.  Stamped the heart outline in distress ink fired brick then positioned the image “love heart” inside it stamped in distress ink vintage photo. Cut it out and layered it onto black. Added some ribbon with a bow made by using the bow easy and layered the background on DoubleMates Berry Red cardstock before layering it all onto black.

supplies: So In Love – OCL, clear embossing powder, versamark and distress fired brick ink, black, red berry & vanilla cardstock, ribbon and bow easy
