Create with all your heART for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps

Just popping in to show you how I made this colourful heART card for Leonie's sale shows on Hochanda TV today.

 First I cut the Funky Heart Base from watercolor card and then placed a few of the Art masks over the top of the 'innie' bit.

I dabbed over with twisted citron Distress Ink

then over-stamped with two of the patterns from Branching Out

masking off as I went with sticky notes

Next for the outlines - I sprinkled Crimson Brusho powder onto more watercolour card

and spritzed with water

then repeated with Purple Brusho

These were used to make the heart outlines, cut with the Funky Heart Base (purple) and Hearts and Swirls Overlay (red) dies

I wanted my sentiment to go around the edge of the heart, so I used the die-cuts as a template to draw in pencil on my card blank roughly where I wanted the heart to go.

I drew another line in pencil a couple of cm away, to stamp the sentiment along.

The sentiment is from one of Leonie's older sets called Flight to Freedom. I cut it up to make it easier to separate the words.

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