Love Heart for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps

I've another Leonie make to show you today, using the 'Off She Flew' stamp set

First I stamped the stitchy heart onto red georgette fabric, then turned it over and ironed onto a used tumble drier sheet with interfacing in between.

I stitched over the stitch marks with some silver thread and then cut the heart out.

To make the background I dabbed worn lipstick distress ink onto my craft mat and spritzed it with water before dragging a piece of Sheena's Stamping Card through it.
When it was dry I stamped some of the solid hearts all over with the same ink and then flicked a little rich gold paint at it.

At this point I glued the card onto an MDF heart with Mod Podge and cut off the excess.

To make the border I stamped the tip of the solid heart all the way around the edge using Versamark ink and then sprinkled on'Classic Pewter' embossing powder. I also used the same powder to do the sentiment.

To finish off I added a button and some red organza ribbon.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
