Chalked Emboss Valentine by Judy Jackson


Happy Monday from Judy Jackson!

We have snow on the ground in southern Pennsylvania and my grandchildren were so excited! They had a great time out in the snow. But everywhere you look in store you see signs of February and Valentine's Day! So it isn't too early to share a Valentine for your Monday inspiration.

I used the Chalked Emboss technique from the December/January Newsletter and then spritzed it with glimmer spray! I also used the Antique Glimmer technique on the tag! I used a movers and shapers die to cut out the Cupid. Cupid, the banner, and the tag are all adhered with foam dots. I sponged the edges of Cupid with black so he showed up against the red of the embossed layer. I added a few ribbons, and it was done!

Stamp credits go to Stampers Anonymous and Stampin' up!

The Chalked Emboss technique is such a fun technique -- and it gives such interesting results! Have you tried it yet? I am going to use it on some other Valentine's I need to make -- and I will share some of those with you!

Happy Stamping!

Judy Jackson

Every example I've seen of that technique has intrigued me. I guess I should try it. This is a great Valentine, Judy!
