........HEARTFELT WISHES.......

Well it's my last week as GDT over at POLLYCRAFT,i would like to say a huge "THANK YOU" to Paula and her lovely team for having me on board for the month of August :0).
This week the challenge theme as been set by Lynsey...and she would like you to "Add some nature" to your card/project...lovely challenge Lynsey,i so enjoyed this one!


Something alittle different,i've seen this technique of "spotlighting" on one or two blogs and have wanted to have a bash at it...so decided this would be the perfect challenge and image for me to experiment with...and i must say i'm pleased with the end result.
The image is from the Pollycraft set "Love Naturally"....i changed the print out colour from black to sepia and printed the image out twice.I then coloured the heart shaped leaves with Promarkers on the one image and cut the heart shape out using Spellbinders Heart Nesties,3d mounted it directly over the same part of the below image.
The sentiment is from the same set and i also changed the colour of the print out to sepia.
The textured cardstock is DCWV and buttons from stash.
I've edged the layers with "Old Paper" Distress Ink.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges :-
STAMPIN' FOR THE WEEKEND......Anything goes.
CUPCAKE CRAFT CHALLENGE.....Lets get digital.

Well that's about it for today....have a lovely Bank holiday Monday.
Take care
