It's been quite some time since I managed to play over at the
January flew by and now February is half way gone too.
So glad I got time to create a little something
suitable for both challenges. Yay!

My hearts have been die cut from
CUTplorations Clustered Hearts.
The base is white card stock and
the pink hearts are inked with
Nuvo Cherry Bomb Shimmer Powder
added to wet acetate then smooched
onto water colour paper.
The red hearts I added gel medium
to the die cuts and added a generous amount of
Nuvo Hollywood Red Sparkle Dust.
I even managed to get a bit of texture to the big one.
which has been cut several times with white card stock
 for dimension then attaching the red sparkly one.
I cut my pink background with a stitched die
popped to my card base which was inked randomly with
tiny hearts from SU Beyond the Basics.
 I then attached my cut out hearts.
The XOXO is from STAMPlorations Pocket Blooms
inked with Tim's Festive Berries
and adding sparkle with a Nuvo Glitter pen.
A tiny pearl to the smallest pink heart finished my card.

A close up showing the dimension.

My Mix is Dimensional Die Cuts, Glitter,
Watercolouring, Stamping.

Thanks for popping in and leaving
your kind comments.

When I enlarged your gorgeous heart textured card, I could really see all the glimmer from the powdered ink and the glitter too. So many beautiful mixed media products on your pretty card, Ina. Our cards sure turned out differently using the same die cut hearts:-)
