Distressed Valentine

Dying to use Tim Holtz Distressed Stamp set I got for x-mas.. combined with finding a most excellent pad of My Mind's Eye DP.. out came my 'Distressed Valentine'....
I used papers from the new stack in conjuction with a couple from a Valentine stack by g.c.d (both stacks are fabulous!!!)
I pulled a little color in around the edges using craft mat, distressed inks and the little color puller by TH... I inked the stamp with Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick on top of that..worked great as my color came out muted and matched well with the papers used. I then heat embossed with Ranger Holographic embossing powder.
SB- cartridge used for oval frames
