Distress Inks

Used a heat proof sheet covered in various Distress Inks spritzed with water and smudged a piece of card through it. It gives a really nice effect. I stamped on top with Distress Inks and matted it onto a scalloped circle. The swirl stamp is from Crafty Individuals.

Hot Chocolate

Background papers are from Basic Grey. I used various edge punches on the layers. The scalloped circle is cut with my Cuttlebug and Nestibilities. The image is from The Glitter Pot. I paper pieced the cup on top of a stamped image so I still got the 'steam'. I used Glossy Accents on the cup and paper-pieced the heart. Leaves are cut with a Martha Stewart punch.
