Floral Heart

This started with a sketch, and a stamp not used before.

I stamped the floral heart with versamark ink onto wine coloured card and heat embossed with white EP.  Then I coloured some flowers in a darker colour with Copics and bleached out other areas to get different tones, then cut it out.  I made the background using 3 tones of pink to get an ombre effect, attached them to black card, and stamped a little sentiment.  I had this doily and ribbon in my stash, and encrusted with clear gems .

Heart flower stamp: Hero Arts
Doily: Dollar shop
Sentiment stamp: magazine freebie
From stash: ppapers, ribbon, silver cord, gems
