Crazy for challenges heart challenge C4C74

This card qualifies for the Crazy for Challenges heart challenge C4C74.

I created this card using Penny Blacks Mimi's Heart Stamp. I coloured both my image and the flowers with my copic markers. I used liquid pearls to add some dimension on her hair band and heart.  I used Spellbinders Lacey squares and an old My Minds Eye paper. I can't wait to give it to my friend for Valentine's Day.

Scrapping weekend

I found some time to play around with a stamp "Women collage/passport"from Hampton Art Jill Meyer, that I picked up from Michaels a few weeks back. I love the collage vintage feel and really wanted to capture it in my project.

1. Stamp using versafine black ink
2. Make perfect pearls mists using Broken china distress ink and Copper perfect pearls, and Frayed Burlap and a turquoise perfect pearl.
3. Mask Stamped image leaving a 1/4" frame around it with plastic from supplies
4. Using a brick template I misted the white cardstock to create the brick pattern behind my image.
