February Make ART Challenge - Hearts

Hi folks!  I'm back with a project created for the latest Wendy Vecchi Make ART Challenge!  This month's challenge is to use hearts on a project...you know, to celebrate LOVE!

I started my card by created all of the individual pieces....(All of the images are from the My Kind of Art stamp set).  The pitcher is embossed with Cornflower Blue embossing powder; Gathered Twigs has been added to the edges.  The heart is a mix of Dina Wakley acrylic paint and Wendy's Crackle Paste.  (Isn't that crackle delish?!)  The flower was stamped twice and colored with watercolors.  I cut out one entire flower and then a portion of the second flower, to create multiple flower layers.  A button with twine finished the flower.

My card background is a piece of vintage book text, covered with a bit of Gathered Twigs ink and Wendy's tiny cross stencil.  I then layered a piece of designer paper, with an oval die cut, on top of the text paper and then added a black frame, created using two Spellbinder oval dies.  Each little scallop on the frame got a silver dot, thanks to a gel pen.  I also added Gathered Twigs over the edge of the entire card and added some faux stitching, from Wendy's Just Sew Artsy stamp set.  Finally, I added the sentiment and a star (from the Little Bits stencil).  Viola!  Hope you enjoyed today's card and be sure to check out this month's challenge!

Terrific card, Kim. Your book page background is just wonderful and the pitcher and crackled heart are fantastic - LOVE the heart - what a cool idea to mix the Dina paint and the Wendy crackle - the result is amazing!
