Marshmallow texture for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps, and welcome to my new follower - I'm thrilled to have you :)

I'm back with another of the samples using Leonie's new products.

So I started off my card by making a spritzed background.
To make my spray I spooned a tiny bit of Brusho crystals into an empty spritzer bottle, added a bit of water and gave it a good swoosh around. I cut a 6" square of Sheena's Stamping card and sprayed it first with yellow and then orange. The orange pretty much obliterated the yellow but you can still see a bit of it :)

I glued on a strip of natural Sinamay ribbon for some texture and then made a start on the focal point.

I die-cut some pink patterned paper with the 'All the Love' hearts and glued it on with Cosmic Shimmer glue (Note to self: don't use glues that cling on like cement unless you're happy with the design). 

Having decided I didn't like the pink I die-cut some white card instead and then covered it with Versamark ink. I sprinkled on loads of Chunky White Embossing Enamel...

Doesn't that look cool? I'm might have a go at doing this with glue so I can leave it that way. However, as I'd used Versamark I needed to now melt the powder else it would all fall off.

Really pleased with how this looks, it's like melted marshmallow :)

I layered it on top of the pink version and then added a bit of washi tape and a white flower. The sentiment in the corner is from the Funky Texture stamps that are also on the shows, stamped with Black Memento ink.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
