Squidgy Flowersoft Heart for LOTV

Hello lovely peeps.

Here's my first Lili of the Valley Design Collective card for February.

I've stamped up 'Odd Dog - Squidgy Heart' onto Neenah Solar White card and coloured him in with Promarkers (Almond, Putty and Tawny Owl). I then filled in the heart with PVA glue and sprinkled on 'Raspberry Fizz' ultra fine Flowersoft.

By the way, if you're doing this technique with something that has a finer texture I would suggest using Zig two-way glue or double sided adhesive. I tried PVA glue with embossing powder (I love the look of it unmelted) but because my glue wasn't perfectly even it ended up all bumpy.
I've layered my topper onto papers from the 8x8 Rose Garden pad by First Edition/Trimcraft. The hearts were cut with X-Cut nesting heart dies and I scribbled around the edges with a black fineliner pen.

For the tag I used one of the stamps from the Sentiment Tags set (also Lili of the Valley). I found a bit of ancient pink raffia in the deepest depths of my stash* to thread through the hole I made with my pokey tool.
* I found the burgundy hessian down there too :D
