Hearts abound

Love Flourish

Love is in the Air on the Penny Black blog again this week so drop in to see the stamps from the new Valentine’s Catalog. I played around with two heart stamps and shades of pink.

When I started sponging over the embossed heart so it could be seen I had every intention of keeping a neutral colour scheme of ivory, white and tan but that little heart inside the heart just cried out to be coloured pink and the rest is obvious-pink came to stay. I still like the softness of the colour scheme.

Are you shocked to see those tiny half pearls? Me too!

Stamps:  Love Flourish, Gratitude (PB)

Also: White embossing powder, pink half pearls and a wee ivory ribbon

Daisy heart

To create this pink heart I masked a rectangle with post it notes and embossed the heart in the centre with clear e.p. I added pinks with a brayer, memento Angel Pink at the top and Rosebud at the bottom and in the centres of the daisies with a marker.  I inked the sentiment stamp in the two pinks to mimic the brayered background.

Stamps: 4291K Daisy Heart, Thinking of You(PB)
