Feel the Love - Papertrey Contest Day 2 - And inking direct to card

Looks like I'm on a roll and full of creative juices at the moment. Ahhhh! It's such a lovely feeling to be out of that rotten old crafter's block. ((big grin)). I'm so fired up that I'm inking direct onto the card base. No master boards, background layers or papers for me at the moment. Just "going for it" and having the time of my life.

It's Day 2 of the Papertrey Ink Anniversary celebrations and Nichole has provided a set of anniversary tags as a free no excuse for people not to join in the contest today. Just download the tags and make a project using them. You can enter up to 9 cards today - don't worry, I doubt I'll make 9 so you won't be seeing 9 posts from me today. lol. You can read all about today's contest by clicking HERE

I can't miss the opportunity of entering this into a few challenges:

Allsorts - Love, Love, Love
Basic Grey - All Heart (Heart Smudge stamps from two scoops range)
One Stitch At A Time - Do it with a digi
Simon Says Stamp - Love is in the Air
Tuesday Taggers - Feel the Lurrrvvvveeee

Items used:
Papertrey Ink - free download anniversary tag digi
Basic Grey - Two Scoops Heart Smudge
Stempleglede - Grunge Flourish Hearts and Grunge Ornamental Circle
Crafty Secrets - stamp from the Cherish set
Distress inks - Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass and Broken China
VersaColour - Violet

Silver Tinsel embossing powder
2mm bling gems
Border peeloffs (Didn't think I'd be using those again, but they gave a nice finish to the card).
