For anyone interested, the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge is having a Design Team call.
I decided to use that beautiful new Bloomin' Heart die introduced in the Occasions Catalogue. I had the idea of cutting it out in one colour and then putting the little negative pieces back in but in another colour. So I cut the heart out in Blackberry Bliss and then in Very Vanilla. About halfway through piecing the bits back into the die-cut heart, I almost gave up. There are a LOT of pieces!
My base cardstock is Blackberry Bliss. I followed that up with a layer of Mint Macaron and then a layer of Blushing Bride. Before attaching them to the base, I cut the upper right and lower left corners using the Curvy Corner Trio punch. I also used the Timeless Textures stamp set and Whisper White Craft ink to stamp several patterns over the Blushing Bride layer.
If you look closely at the Very Vanilla flower petals which I pieced back into the Blackberry Bliss heart, you may notice that I covered them with a layer of the clear Wink of Stella shimmer. I sponged the die-cut Blushing Bride flowers lightly with Blackberry Bliss to add texture.
Finally I added part of a sentiment from the Picture Perfect stamp set, stamping it in Blackberry Bliss ink.
I hope you'll join us this week and link up your own creation. Remember, it's "anything goes". For more samples created by the Watercooler Artists, check out the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
I've also entered my card in the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge which gives options in a Tic-Tac-Toe. I chose the far right vertical.
I've also added my card to the SUO Challenge since that is all about Valentines.
