Hugs & Kisses FMS

My kids were here for the weekend which was great, but I wanted to spend sometime playing with my Distress Oxide Inks.  So I made a couple of cards with the Freshly Made Sketches for this week.  I masked the sentiment area with a banner die.  Then inked the Oxide Ink on, spritzed it with water and with the blotting of the paper towel it left an interesting pattern on the paper and I liked the texture.  I heat setted it, inked the sentiment and stamps.  Then I added a gem and sequins.  I kept it as a simple Valentine card.

Cardstock:  Recollection
Die:  My Favorite Things
Ink:  Distress Oxide - Fired Brick
        Memento - Tuxedo Black
Stamp:  My Favorite Things - X's and O's
Sequins: stash
Gem:  Mark Richards
Water & Paper Towel
