The Crafty Eraser

Hi All,

The card I have for you today uses a technique that I was really quite excited to try out.  It simply uses a pencil's eraser and a heart template.  Who'da thunk it?  I had gotten the idea on pinterest from someone that was crafting up a canvas bag.  My first thought...we could easily do this on a card. Voila!  Here it is:

This was the inspiration and a quick tutorial:

What a fun & easy technique!  I used a heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits as a template to create the heart.  When I was done, the inside of the heart had a straight line around the edge.  I went back and placed the unused outside portion of the heart die over my new print and went around the inside of the heart.  It gave it a softer look.  I finished it off with a few different looks.  Hard to pick a favorite.  I love them all!

I'm not usually a technique girl, but this one seemed to good to pass up.  Give it a shot...I guarantee you won't be disappointed.  Would even be pretty easy to do with little ones as a craft project.
