Brusho Hearts for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps

I've got another card to show you that I've made with 'Growing Love' - one of Leonie's lovely new embossing folders.

First I ran a piece of 5"x7" 300gsm white card through the embossing folder and set it to one side to keep clean.

Next I put some Brusho crystals into a paint palette and added a bit of water to each colour. I've used vermillion, orange, violet, yellow and rose red

I sploshed the paint onto some damp watercolour card, using a clean very damp paintbrush for each new colour and also brushing on some clean water as I went to make the the colours bleed into each other a bit

After drying it off with a heatgun I ran it through the embossing folder and then cut out all of the individual hearts, trying to keep track of which one went where :o)

I then had a little segue trying to make something where the hearts were dangling down. After faffing around with different backgrounds/buttons/embellishments/colours for practically an entire day I couldn't find any combination I was happy with so I abandoned the idea and went back to my original plan. I thought you might like to see one of it's incarnations though.

So, after glueing all the individual hearts into place on the white version of the embossed card, I attached co-ordinating ribbons and buttons down the left hand side and added a simple sentiment banner (using Leonie's 'All the Love' stamp set).

Your creations are both amazing!! Love very much your card with the coordinate ribbons and the birdhouse! Such a clever idea cutting the embossed shapes and re-put them in a new embossed cardstock, in the same place! Thanks for sharing this technique!
