Sweet Stamps Challenge 16 - Medallions

Today is our sixteenth challenge on the Sweet Stamps blog.  Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.  Our challenge  this week is ......

Medallions


I stamped Six Heart Medallion with white dye ink, heat embossing with Pearl embossing powder.  I dry embossed the image from the back side and then lined it up on my 6 x 9 Straight Grid to create the embossed dots in the center.  I added color with my red Memento marker. 

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!

Hi Sandy, thanks for stopping by to clarify that my oval is not a medallion. I feel like a dope now. Is there a specific cartridge that has these or a specific place you use for stamps to get these effects?
Thanks again.
Smilez,
Jessica
