Mean It

Hi and welcome to SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #2.  And here is this week's challenge:

SugarPea Designs Challenge Designers June 8:

I went with the inspiration pic this week and just had to test out my new Mini Minc machine...

It's hard to see in the photo above, but I inked the "Love you, mean it" stamp from Talk is Chic with a toner marker and then foiled it with gold.  It's not perfect as you can see bits of black through the foil, so I definitely need more practice.

For the rest of the card, I die-cut a panel with Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles and stamped across the bottom with the heart border from Build a Background Basics and red ink.  I used the same red ink to stamp the lips beside the sentiment.  That whole panel was then popped up on foam tape onto a white card base.  Pretty simple!

Thanks for visiting!

Here are the guidelines to join in our challenge:

Had no idea there were toner markers out there. After buying the Mini Minc I realized both of the printers in my house do not use TONER:(( now I'm desperately seeking other means of inking so I can use the Minc in creative ways.
I think your sentiments look great!
