Magenta February Challenge

First of the month means a new challenge on the Magenta blog. This month's theme is Valentine's Day.

Supplies: script and postmark, heart and sentiment stamps (Magenta), black Archival ink and Dylusions Ink Spray (Ranger), cardstock (Bazzill), border punch and pink emboss powder (Stampin' Up), Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels), gesso (Liquitex), black watercolour pencil crayon (Reeves), white pen (Signo), black pen (Sharpie)

Magenta stamps used:

Crosshatched Heart
Crosshatched Heart 42.239.C
Thanks for touching my heart in such lovely ways
Sentiment stamp 07.731.I

Script and Postmark
Script and Postmark stamp 95.085.M 
While it is hard to see in the photo, the kraft cardstock is covered in pearlized glimmer as I pre-sprayed it with Glimmer Mist before I started stamping. I tried a little wax candle resist on the stamped Script and Postmark's postal seals and around the embossed hearts. Then, I used Dylusions Ink Spray for the first time. Love the ink's vibrancy. I just have to watch how much I saturate the paper when spraying as it bleed under the waxed areas a bit so the resist is not as prominent.

My fellow DT members have created a beautiful variety of projects for this month's challenge. You can see all the takes on the theme, read the challenge details, and see the prize pack here.

Even if you do not have any Magenta Valentine's themed products, do not let that deter you. Use what you have in creative ways, either, by using the colours associated with the day or just a love them in general. Remember that you only need to use 1 Magenta product to enter, so give it a try with what you have on hand.
