Mwah for Leonie

 Hello lovely peeps

Leonie is launching a brand new collection right now on Hochanda TV of Mixed Media dies and also some stamps. They are fabulous and will probably sell like hot cakes :)

I started off my card by making the background.
Here I've blended Distress Inks onto some Sheena Stamping Card.

I stamped some of the flower stamps over the top using the same colours of ink.

I found some nice chipboard letters in my stash and covered them with Titanium White acrylic paint

 I cut the mouth shape from the 'Looking Good' die set out of white card a few times and coloured them in with Promarkers. I then dabbed them on my Versamark ink pad, covered with clear embossing powder and melted with my heat gun. This gives them a lovely glossy finish and intensifies the colours (below is the 'before' and 'after' picture)

I cut the background down to fit a 6"x6" card blank before wrapping organza ribbon around the back and attaching it to the base card.

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

This is super embarrassing but I had to look up mwah.. All I needed to do was sound it out. Anyway, great card with lots of visual texture. Fun layout and I am really enjoying your background. Very 'sentimental' and hope the recipient gets lots of those mwah's.. Thank you so much for joining us at MMM.
Cyber Hugs,
