S.W.A.K.

 Hello there!  I've been working on some Valentines the last few days.  So fun!  I painted with Mica Spray Stain raised lips on this embossed cardstock.  It gave it a fun shimmer.  And the SWAK is cut 3 times from 110lb cardstock to give it some dimension.  And I covered the letters with Diamond Stickles to give them some glittery shine.  Since the letter die set didn't have a period I used some tiny hearts cut out of pink foil cardstock.  This looks way cuter in person :-)


Supplies:
Darice - Lips Kissing embossing folder
Distress Mica Spray Stain - Cocktail Party
Unity Stamp Co - Scallop Rectangle die
Tim Holtz - Alphanumeric Stretch Upper
pink foil cardstock
Diamond Stickles

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a beautiful day!
