This is Virginia's first challenge and I HAD to play along
The photo is so gorgeous I took it quite literal. I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts, Truly Appreciated) first then began stamped the hearts (Hero Arts, Sweet Hearts) around it. I stamped the hearts again on a separate piece of white. I colored them with seedless preserves, worn lipstick, and dried marigold. To blend them I sprayed the heck out of them with Pearl Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels). Once they were dry I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the card. I drew in the hanging lines with a fine black pen and a ruler.
Now I love some pearl shine but my heart lies with stickles :) The pearl really muted the colors so I decided to add the stardust stickles to really make them pop off the card. I rounded one corner for some balance then popped up the whole panel on a white card base.
I really think it came out simple and sweet. yay :) Oh side note if anyone has some tips for photographing white cards please let me know. As you can see I struggle lol
Okay I'm off to play with some more stamps and ink! Thanks for coming over :)
