Follow your Heart

I love making tags as you can create so much colour and texture on them
The Butterfly Die was perfect addition to the front.  I cut that out in white and then inked the edges with Butter Bar and then added a flower from my huge stash.

For the base I added Orange Soda, Butter Bar and Bubble gum onto my silicon mat and then sprayed it with water and spreed the colours around.  I then placed the tag onto the colours and made sure that it covered the whole tag.  I dried it with my heat gun.
I then got my favourite stencil out Leaf and Flourish and used Orange soda, Butter Bar and Bubble Gum and a sponges then started at the top and worked my way down changing the colours so it was dark at the top and light at the bottom. I then used Wet Cement with the same stencil and just added some leaves to it.  I used some stamps from French Script with the same ink pad to add some depth to the card.
I heat embossed the Follow Your Heart with Gold embossing powder to the bottom corner.  I then added some "stitching" with a fine black pen.  Then put it all together.

Hi.  I received my new supply of Hero Arts yesterday and went straight into creating mode.  Seeing as it is Valentine’s Day next week I thought I would make a card that could be given for Valentine’s Day or even just given to a friend.
I love my Stencils and had to use the Leaf and Flourish straight away.  I got some white card stock and then coloured some texture paste to create the pink tone.  I let that dry and then cut a heart out with it.  I then cut a second one out about 3mm larger then the first one.
I used bubble gum and butter bar and water spray to spread the colours around the stenciled area and then edged the heart with Bubble Gum and a sponge.
I then stenciled the card just with textured paste and then lightly coloured it again with the same colours.  I added the Hero Arts crystals and flowers.  This stencil has now become my favorite item and will be used on a lot of my next projects.
