Let Love Grow

I am sure I have mentioned it before, but I just love Valentines Day and working with hearts. When I saw this new stencil Beverly had in her shop, Memory Box Heart Confetti, I loved it at first sight!

I sure wish you could see this card (and feel it) in person.
The hearts look like and feel like pink velveteen! I stenciled it with Dreamweaver Regular Embossing Paste.
Before applying the paste with the Paste Spreader, I wanted to give it some color, so I just applied a small amount  of TH Distress Picked Raspberry ink to my mat
and mixed in the paste with the Palette Knife, bringing us to the beautiful color the hearts are!

Another favorite technique of mine lately is coloring on Vellum. It is so easy, just stamp your image with VersaMark, cover with a fine White Detail Embossing Powder, heat set, flip your image over and color. I find Copics work the best, as it gives a soft, muted look, 
which is the look  I am after!

The image I used is JustRite Hope and Love Vintage Labels Eight and Nine Stamp Set. Before coloring the image, I used Spellbinders Heart Circles to cut it out. I love how you can softly see the hearts underneath the vellum. I added a bow and a White Pearl to the center of that.

Thanks for visiting with me today!
