Have a Heart (or two)

Hi there ,

It is the Claritystampers East workshop on Saturday, so I have been busy prepping for that.  I am looking forward to it, such a fab bunch of ladies!

This is a little card I did for the TV last weekend, using the heart and swirl from the Hope set.  I am very partial to black and white cards and thought these stamps would suit that look.  I was quite pleased with how it turned out.
I always do the frame first, luckily I had some post-its which were the right size for the square in the middle , so I used that as a mask for the centre area, then stamped round the edge with the swirly stamp and also inked around the edge of the mask.
Remove the mask and stamp the front heart in place, then stamp again on a post it and cut out two masks. place one over the stamped heart, then stamp the second  one in place.  Put the other mask over that and just add a little bit of black round the edges of the hearts.  Remove the masks.  I stamped the heart again on a separate piece of card, then cut out, shaped and decoupaged over the top of the front heart.
Hope you like it
