Velvet Look Inking Technique and St. Patrick's Day Card

An experiment always adds interest - after all you never know how it's gonna turn out.  After die cutting three Heart and Home Doilies with a heart shaped die I inked them up by pressing them onto the stamp pad.  I really like the look it made - kind of a velvet look with lowlights and highlights.

To begin with I embossed the card front with the Stitched Greenery die to make the vine design on the front.

To ink the die cut hearts I pressed them white side down on the ink pad using a larger piece of card stock on top to press with. Here's the Granny Apple Green Card:
