New Barkley Acrylic Stamps

Barkley has a new release coming!! Very soon - like, today!! :)
4 acrylic sets - 1 new image; 3 previously released images. The arcylic set is resized - it's smaller, which is great for smaller projects! There will also be Embossing Folders and a design Paper Pad!

I used die cuts for all the shapes of my little card.  To create the hinge with the scalloped circle die, I placed the die slightly above the fold of the base card so it would not cut a complete circle.

I stamped the image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and colored them with Spectrum Noir blendable colored pencils (002, 034, 035, 088, 098, 105, 107, 112, 113, 116, 120).  To pick up a little texture in the heart, I colored directly on top of my desk with no paper pad. I colored with light and medium pressure, building colors. I also used a very small amount of baby oil on a cotton swap to blend in some areas.  After I colored in the whole little scene, I went back in and darkened some areas by applying more pressure.

On the inside I added a piece of the design paper and a sentiment from the set.
