Bold Blooming Heart

It's one layer week at Less is More and it's anything goes so I decided to get smoochy for Valentine's Day with some Papersmooches blooms in a heart mask

I also decided to double up on challenges and enter this project to this week's CASology challenge where the cue word is "AND" with the romantic sentiment I opted for

It's also my project on my shop's blog this week   as we have a large delivery of new Papersmooches goodies that will be in store in a couple of days ;-)

I die cut a heart mask from a sheet of scrap paper and stuck it over my card base and then stamped an arrangement of flowers and leaves from Papersmooches Bold Blooms through the mask onto the card (if you try this technique with large stamps like the leaf I used, a good tip is to not use an acrylic block - just put the stamp on the card and hold it in place with one hand but press it with the other - I find this gets you closer to the edge of the mask)

I stamped the sentiments from WPlus9's Valentine's Wishes over the top in Versafine black to make it stand out and then I traced around the die with a black glitter pen to tie it all together.!/~/product/category=3351881&id=32781849!/~/product/category=2717738&id=18666079
