My Heart ....

..... Hi again!  I've been thinking about the inspiration card at TIME OUT challenges and suddenly had an idea:

My Heart - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - My Heart
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Summer Starfruit, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Cream Lustre Card; SU Card - Summer Starfruit; BARC Wood - Cherry; Mulberry Paper


I really like the woodgrain finish on Shery's card and that heart is fab too!  I used the layout from Retro Sketches - RS#102 and the colours are (sort of) from Colour Q - cQC#229.  I adapted the colours a bit - the card is covered with real wood!  It comes as a 12" × 12" sheet and this is cherry wood, sort of like peach parfait.  The surface is really smooth and it takes a stamp beautifully! I don't have apricot card so I used some mulberry paper that is similar.  I stamped the outside of the woodgrain heart in green and added an inner heart in Summer Starfruit.  On the inside I cut a mat of Summer Starfruit and stamped the heart.

That's all for now - I'm off back to the ice-skating!
