A Happy Heart – brad challenge

This week's challenge over on Late Night Stampers is to use brads.  Here is my design team submission for the challenge.  I also challenged myself to use nothing but scraps left on my table!  That was a little tougher!

The background on this is an experiment using Watercolor Paper and Classic Inks.  I misted the paper before I stamped on it, and completely filled it with the large heart inked with Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron and Regal Rose.  I like the abstract look to it!  It was layered on Always Artichoke.

The Tic Tac Toe image with inked up with Stampin' Write markers in Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron and Regal Rose and stamped on Very Vanilla card stock.  I layered it on Always Artichoke, too.  I stamped the I heart u with Close to Cocoa ink on Regal Rose, coloring the heart with Regal Rose marker.  (It was a scrap in my leftover punch container).  The Designer Paper is a scrap…sorry, I can't remember what it is from…maybe retired?  I layered everything on So Saffron cardstock and a base of Regal Rose cardstock.  Then I added three So Saffron mini brads along the left side.  Turned out to be some very non-traditional colors for Valentine's Day, but I like the combination!

Hope you have a great week!  I'll be busy getting ready for Leadership next week!  Woohoo!!!
