I tried out a little something special for these Valentine cards. With some experimenting, I was able to get the ink distribution just right. See how the ink is a distinct swirl on the disc? And see the slight but unmistakable results? The bottom of the heart is darker than the top. I've got a crush on this technique now.
Speaking of February 14th, I'm offering a special 2-for-1 workshop just in time for Valentine's day.
