Teri here, and I've got a fun way for you to use Technique Tuesday's Lacy Heart steel die!
Rather than using the die plain, cut it from cardstock and then add some stripes to it with ink like I did here.
You can create that rainbow look easily with masking! Let me show you how.
Die-cut the Lacy Heart once with from glossy white cardstock. You could use a plain cardstock, but I prefer glossy because it takes to dye inks quite well. It goes on quick, and you can really even out the ink so it doesn't look blotchy.
Set the die-cut on scratch paper. Apply a strip of sticky note tape across it.
Sponge ink onto the heart.
Remove the tape.
Cover up where you just inked. And then add a second piece of sticky note tape. Apply a second color of ink.
Remove the sticky note tape. Cover up where you inked again and move the second strip down. Apply a third color of ink. Repeat this process until you have a whole rainbow's worth of color on the heart.
Something you may want to consider as you ink the heart is using a solid piece of cardstock for your scratch paper. Because of the heart's design, you'll end up with a fun pattern on the paper. You may want to use this piece on a second project.
If not, that's OK. You'll still have an amazing heart to use on a card or scrapbook page.
PS. Looking for Story Card Sunday? It will return next week! Hope to see you then!
