KICKSTART YOUR ART with Smeared and Smudged Day 2

There is an art journal challenge going on over at Smeared and Smudged.  It is a Daily challenge for 7 days which gives participants 24 hours to complete each day's challenge.  I'm new to art journaling so I thought I'd give these challenges a go...time permitting of course.

The challenge for day 2 was to use an image of a heart(s) and/or journaling about a heart(s).

Pictured below is my take on the challenge:

I used stamps from Smeared Ink's "Heart Wings" rubber set which can be purchased as a "past offering" from Smeared Ink's Rubber Club.
I started with the words, inked them with embossing ink/glue and heat set clear embossing powder.  Next came layers of Dylusions Spray Inks.  I wiped the ink off the clear embossed words.  When dry, I stamped the various hearts with embossing ink/glue and heat set colored embossing powder.

Bring on Day 3
