ZEN HEARTS!!!

Hello Everyone! I hope this finds you having a WONDERFUL week!! Todays card is showcasing one of my FAVORITE techniques from the latest Technique Junkie Newsletter, the ZEN STAMPING Tutorial. Not only is there a great tutorial on this, but Pat offers several samples of "Zen" to play with!!!




I used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!  on the white cardstock and layered that on black card stock. I adhered those layers to the red card stock that measures at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". I stamped the Scattered Hearts Stamp from Drs Designs and then used a Black Spica Copic Pen to create the ZEN technique. I used the Red Spica Copic Pen to color around the hearts to add a little zing to my Zen. I layered this white layer on black card stock and punched the border using the eyelet border punch. The sentiment is called One Line Valentine Greeting I finished the card with this gorgeous Red Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Don't forget to come by tomorrow for the DRS Designs Challenge!! Have a wonderful week!
