well the icky sticky weather has continued - and so has my search for air conditioning ;) On the positive side I can say that the heat makes glue dry really quickly (more on that below). So this week at Just Add Ink we want you to Just Choose Two. See what Nikki has picked for us this time.
And here is what I came up with.
Where this ended up was not where I started but sometimes you just need to let things go the way they want! I did like the combination of ombre embossing (I used a rolling pin to get the partial pressure so the hearts only embossed on the bottom half of the front panel) and ombre colour behind the detail of the floral thinlet. I gave the detailed die cut some substance by cutting three layers and glueing them together. Then I covered the entire surface with glue leaving it to dry to a shiny glossing coating. Hanging the 'U' from the love sentiment was a quirky touch that just appealed to me so I added it in (and I liked that it draws your eye down to the embossed hearts too).
You can have a lot of fun with the Choose two challenges - do go check out the rest of the design team for some great ideas, then come back and share your take on the challenge!
