Heartfelt Wishes

When a dear friend of mine had a mild heart attack last week, it was extremely reassuring to learn that he's going to be just fine and, in fact, was sent home just two days later.  Naturally, a Get Well card was immediately in the works, and what better image to use than one featuring a heart?  Or in this case, three of them . . .

The background on this one was the result of more fun with reinkers and plastic wrap. I dropped three colors of reinkers onto plastic wrap, misted it pretty well to make the colors move, and laid my cardstock on top.  Then I flipped the whole thing over and pushed the plastic wrap around to make it wrinkle and concentrate the colors.  When dry, I peeled off the wrap and was rewarded with some marble-like coloration. 

Except for the waiting-until-it-dries part, this technique is super quick and makes it easy to do up a bunch of them to have at the ready for your next stamping session . . .
