Falling Hearts

Hello friends!  It's time for a new Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers!  Karen is hosting this week and has chosen a seasonal Cherry Cobbler, Rococo Rose and Vanilla, with a dessert option to "have a heart".  I'm also joining the current Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

I decided to use this sweet girl catching hearts for my main image.  I stamped her on Ivory card stock then colored her with Copic markers similar to Rococo Rose and the hearts in a Cherry Cobbler-ish combination.

After the coloring was complete, I used a circle die to cut out the image and a slightly larger one to create a Rococo Rose circle for layering.  The sentiment was stamped separately and trimmed down to a small strip.

Next I embossed a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock using a heart stencil, trimmed it to 1 1/2" strips and added it to the Ivory card base.  The main image and sentiment were adhered with fun foam, then I decided to add shimmer to the hearts both in the focal point and on the embossed panels, as well as the Bundle Girl's clothes..  I also covered the hearts above that sweet little girl with crystal glaze so they look both shimmery and shiny.  If I had it to do again, I wouldn't have added the shimmer to the hearts in the embossed panels because somehow they seem less defined, but nevertheless I still love the main image!

Thanks so much for visiting, I appreciate it so much!  I hope you'll use the link above to SCS and join us for the Color Challenge this week!
