The hearts are made with the Punch Windows Mover’s and Shaper’s die. I wanted them to be a little bit bigger than our heart punch so they could show off just a little bit more of that gorgeous toile stamp. I used Whisper White paper to make the hearts. I stamped the image with Basic Black ink and then used my Aqua Painter to color it in with Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery ink. Then, I covered the entire heart with Crystal Effects. It took and long, long time to dry because we are in the middle of rainy weekend. In fact, I had to let them dry overnight . . . that’s how humid it is! But, it was worth it as they are shiny gorgeous! I noticed, however, that the Whisper White was looking a little more like Very Vanilla once the Crystal Effects was on it. So the rest of my card uses Very Vanilla accents to match the hearts a little better.
