Merry Monday Hearts 2

I just discovered that you cannot link two images to a challenge from the same blog post so I had to redo my original post and split it into two.

Here's the second card for the Merry Monday "Hearts" challenge:

I created a background with red and green brushos, sprinkled on watercolour paper and spritzed. The blue and yellow is actually part of the green brusho crystals! When dry, I dug out an old stamp of a Christmas heart - if you look closely you'll see it has holly leaves on it. Stamped it with my MISTI to get a good impression and heat embossed it. I added it to a red border and a cream cardbase.

I'm still working on my quota for June and July for Christmas cards, and June's SCS Christmas Card Challenge is to use pearls on a card, so I used my cream pearl pen to add dimension to the pearls in the image and to add a few random pearls to the background.

And it's for today's Mixed Media challenge at SCS - "Love It" (to use something you love).  I love my brushos and I love making Christmas Cards.  Plus it's a heart and the word "love" is in the sentiment so it fits all round!


Stamps: Rubbernecker Christmas Heart, unknown sentiment
Paper: watercolour paper, cream and red cs
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: green and red brushos, clear embossing powder, Spellbinders rectangles, dimensionals, cream Viva Pearl Pen
