Motherly Love for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps

Did you catch Leonie on Hochanda this afternoon? She was having a play with her Entwined Heart collection during her regular Let Leonie Loose show.  If you haven't seen it yet, I'm giving away a die from this collection as part of my 200th blog post celebration.

 Email followers can enter too - see the giveaway post for details.

Here's a card I made for the launch show back in June using this range.

The heart I've used is the Funky Heart base, which comes with a 'Love' sentiment and some twirly bits.

As soon as I saw this die it reminded me of those abstract figurines you can get of a mother and child.

After a few attempts with a pencil and scrap paper I managed to draw a pair of recognisable faces to fit into the outline. I sprayed fine hairspray over the drawing to seal it.

I cut the heart and sentiment from pink Adorable Scorable card and layered up onto a cream card with layers of white, just adding a little organza bow for the girl's hair.

Sorry for the poor picture quality, the light wasn't good at the time and it's a devil trying to capture really pale colours.
Thanks for stopping by,
Katrina x
