True Love CAS Mix Up Reminder

Hello, dear friends.

It's already the middle of the month and time for another Cling Wrap card.

This month Nancy has challenged us to  use cling wrap.

We have lots of videos at CAS Mix Up if you're not sure 
how to go about using cling wrap.

The Design Team is joined this month by Christine (It's a Card's Day Night)
The designs are bound to inspire you.

My background was done with alcohol ink and lots of blending solution.
I scrunched up some cling wrap over the wet inks and left it to dry.

I was going to die cut the heart from it, but I kept thinking "Achy, Breaky Heart"
and decided to use it for the background and have my heart whole. LOL!
Don't want to give a broken heart to my true love!

I die cut the heart from some textured cardstock, pressed it in a VersaMark pad,
and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  It's popped up on some foam.

I love the texture that shows through the embossing and goes well
with the gold mixative I added to the alcohol inks.

My mixed media are 
stamping, cling wrap technique with alcohol ink, die cut and heat embossing.

I hope we'll see you CAS card in the gallery!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

It looks like a pile of soft red velvet, Bonnie. So gorgeous with the gold embossed heart. I've done cling with Brushos but not with alcohol ink. I'd better give that a try.
