I'm Here to A-MUSE you with the All My Heart Set

Ok... the title is about as amusing as it gets...Yup - That's all I have. SIGH

The set for this months Muse Monday feature over at Bombshell Stamps is the "All My Heart" set. This set has several different hearts that you can use in so many ways. This is one of the sets I LOVE to use the coloring with pencils on black technique. For some reason the details of the hearts just scream out to me to use white ink and embossing powder for their details.

I made a set of three ATC's this week. I used black paper. If you look really closely you can see the texture. To make it look as smooth as possible with a little bit of texture I use the back side of textured cardstock. Now you can by really smooth black paper, but the slight texture just adds to it. For most places that there is color on here I colored with white pencil first, then went over it with the color I wanted. You can see the center of the hearts on the biggest and smallest are not as dark... that is where I went directly with the pinkish red color. You can see a definite difference in how the color takes.  Once done, I cut out the matching paper just slightly smaller than the black ATC chalkboards I had... Then I popped up the cut out hearts in the middle of each one. They needed a little something so I went back with enamel accents and added some corner stuff.

Now, several other Bombshells have some inspiration for you as well... So go check them out.
