be my sweetie

Hello! For my card today I used Emma's new set called 100% Sweetness. I stamped the cupid images to make my background paper and then went over that with the new Tim Holtz distress ink call Festive Berries. This is an awesome red! ♥ it!!! {thanks for the happy mail Emma!} I then spritzed it with water mixed with perfect pearls in a mini mister. When you do this technique you will get splotches {which I love!} BUT if you want a smoother look, be sure to let your ink dry first. You can see the shine here...
It really is cooler in real life. I stamped the xoxo's from the 100% Sweetness set and they make a perfect 4 inch strip to go across a card front. ;) Lastly, I white heat embossed the sentiment onto the heart die that is INCLUDED in the 100% Sweetness set!!!! 

Have a FANTASTIC day!!
