ATC 'heart' swap

These are my ATCs for the February swap on the Bubbly Funk forum, where we needed to use a heart.

I started with a 12 x 12 paper from Tim Holtz's vintage shabby range, cutting into ATC sized pieces. I then stampedthe cArt-Us heart stamp with warm red chalk ink and embossed with detail clear powder. I then stamped two corners with part of the Dimensions crafts flourish, again using warm red chalk ink and embossing. I then distressed around the ATCs with fired brick DI.
