Rosy Heart for Leonie

Good evening lovely peeps.

Leonie is launching her 'Entwined' collection this evening on Hochanda TV. There are three collections of four co-ordinating heart dies (12 in total) and also six sets of clear stamps.

For my first card I have used 'Funky Heart Base' (which includes the 'Love' word die) and 'Hearts and Swirls'

For the background, I scribbled some Spectrum Aqua Markers ('Peach' and 'Spice') on my craft mat and spritzed them with water.

I dragged some gloss card through the ink and then sprinkled rock salt on the puddles (the same technique that I used on my 'Miss You' card from this morning)

Once this was dry I brushed off the salt and glued it to a 6x6 card blank

I cut the two different hearts from 'plain' patterned papers. Because the paper was only 120gsm I put wax paper in between the die and the paper to help it release more easily and prevent it pulling out of shape.
The waste swirls from the 'Hearts and Swirls' die were ideal for rolling up into paper roses, so I cut a few extra ones to make sure I had enough for a little cluster.

To finish off I die-cut the 'Love' sentiment from the Funky Heart Base set from the same paper.
Simples :)
