Papertrey Ink Button Challenge & Tutorial...

Plugging away with another PTI Challenge. I had other projects slated to share this week, but I'm having a TON of fun thinking outside of the box! This card was a loooooong work in progress. I actually started out with a plain heart and "attempted" to sew around the edges...BIG mistake! Once I regrouped and gave up in the impossible, this was my end result! Scroll along with me and I will show you how you can make shadow hearts too. Stamps sets used: Masculine Motifs (sentiment), Text Style II, Studio Style.
1. Stamp your bg cs with Text Style in Versamark ink. Cut scalloped heart images from copier paper saving the heart image AND the negative. You could probably use Eclipse Tape here, I just wasn't sure if it would leave sticky residue on my cuttlebug plates. 2. Take your first scalloped heart, place it where you like, use a cotton dauber and vintage ink and rub the outsides of the heart image.
3. Now you have a "shadow" effect.
4. Take your negative and lay it directly over your shadow image. 5. Hold your negative snug and stamp away with the buttons in Studio Style. Look at those inky paws! 6. Tah-dah! Loads of buttons without the added weight!
7. Once you have your first heart done, you can repeat as many as you like! I do plan on giving this to my sweet husband! There are no ribbons, frills, or embellishments that wouldn't make this perfect for a male card.
