A close up detail...

I made these little hearts by covering an old pizza box with red card, covered the card with a real thick layer of glue stick and clear embossing powder. Heated the hell out of it so it cracks and distresses, then rubbed some dark ink over it and into all the cracks. I love the look and how it feels to touch - a very important factor for me, I love to have a tactileness in my arty bits, it just adds that something extra. I think they look a bit gothicy and wouldn't use them on a cutesy style of layout but that's okay cos they go fine with my project of the moment. Hope you like them!
