Etched Hearts

Valentine's Day is fast approaching.
Brenda made this card using our Etched Heart stamp but created a different shape by stamping and colouring through a heart shaped mask.
You can make one of these reverse masks but just cutting the shape out of a piece of paper, then lay it over your card and ink and stamp through the cut out.
