A Piece of My Heart



These lovey-dovey hedgies are part of a Penny Black clear set called Piece of My Heart. Aren't they the sweetest? I did my coloring with Copic markers, added some crystal ultrafine glitter using a quickie glue pen, then sponged around the perimeter (with the Spellbinders Mega Curved Rectangle die in place) with a pale yellow ink before attaching it to a card designed with my beloved "Be-Loved" designer paper collection by My Mind's Eye. The chipboard heart, by Maya Road, has been covered with one of the MME papers, sponged around the perimeter, glitzed up with some Kaiser Craft rhinestones, and then paired with a red button tied with May Arts ivory burlap string. On the inside, I added a second sentiment and a small bit of decoration.



Thanks so much for stopping by! And thank you for the sweet comments on both of the blog hops earlier this week. You gave me something to look forward to in between the fifty-plus trips to the bathroom for potty training - UGH! (He's actually doing really well - go Gabriel!)

Mama mia said...

really cute. Quick question...since I'm new at stamping..does it matter the type of ink you use to stamp the image? some better than others? paper you stamp on? How do you get the bright colors? Thankyou for your help.
