Love Doilies and Hearts

Hi Crafters and thank you for coming bye today... 

Today im showing you a card i made using a new technique i came across online... I cant remember where i saw it or if the technique has a name!!! silly me hey!!??

Heres the Card:

The Background uses the technique i came across.... Ive stamped my background using the SU 'En Francais' stamp all over - ive used Raspberry Ripple ink.... I then stamped hearts using my Versa mark ink pad, the stamps i used are from the lovely 'Hearts a Flutter' set from the new spring and summer mini... i then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder and my heat tool... I then brayered all over my background again using the Raspberry Ripple ink... once i was happy with my coverage i then buffed up my embossed areas with kitchen roll... this is the first time ive used this technique but i like the effect it gives of revealing the pattern / script through the embossed areas only ..

Ive added a Doilie - cut from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits to place my hearts on... I do love these Doilies and have a lovely card to show you wednesday using them again...

To finish off my card i added hearts from the Hearts a flutter set, with hearts punched from the silver glimmer card, Crochet Trim, a flower cut from the SU flower trim, My Ticket sentiment is stamped from the 'Thats the Ticket' stamp set, again from the Spring and Summer Seasonal Catalogue..

Heres what i used for my card
Very Vanilla and Raspberry Ripple ink and card stock, Delicate Doilies Sizzlits L*, Hearts a Flutter stamp set and Framelits Dies, Thats the ticket stamp set, Ticket Duo Punch, Heart Punch, Silver glimmer card, En Francais stamp, Crochet trim and Flower Trim..
