Glitter Heart

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by.

Happy Valentine's Day.

This ended up being hubby's Valentine.

First I die cut this heart (thank you, dear friend) out of mixed media paper colored
with Brushos sprayed with water.

When it was dry, I smacked it with VersaMark and heat embossed
it with clear embossing powder....several times.

The last time I heat embossed it, I sprinkled on some chunky glitter
and smooshed it into the soft embossing.

The sentiment was cut from some clear embossed black cardstock and
the arrow has some gold embossing on the point.

Since I used Brushos and water, red and black, I'll put this in
the CAS Watercolour gallery.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Beautiful VD card for Bruce! Love how shiny the heart is with the layers of clear embossing. So clever to add the glitter and press it into the embossing. Happy Valentine's Day to you, sweet friend! xx

Your glitter heart is beautiful - all those layers of embossing powder and the gold glitter really make it stand out. And so clever the way you "pierced" it with the arrow!
