Heart Wood

Hello.  Welcome.  CASology's cue word this week is forest.  I was looking at this stamp from Unity that I just got and it made me think of initials carved in trees.  So I decided to concentrate on one tree in the forest.......

This stamp is from Unity Be Different kit.  I stamped it three times to extend the image and embossed with silver powder.  I used an embossing pen to add the side lines to the trunk and embossed them with silver as well.  The heart was silver at this point so I used my embossing pen on the heart and then red embossing powder.  Not exactly the result I was expecting because the silver embossing mobilised as well and has given a distressed sort of appearance to the heart.  But that's OK, cos if you carve a heart on a tree growing in a forest it will probably end up looking a bit distressed.  I thought this might make an unusual Valentines card.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
