Heart Happy

Hi, just popping in quickly with a card for the latest Muse challenge.  I was inspired by the heart with stripes and the pink shades.

I added some alcohol inks to a panel of Yupo cardstock and tried (again!) to add gold foil hoping it would stick to the wet ink.  Nope - I still haven't got that technique mastered.  I got a bit of foil to stick but not much. Back to the drawing board.

Anyway, I thought the panel didn't look too bad so I chose a good-looking bit and die-cut the Peek a Boo Striped Heart.  I used the negative die cut to add back the strips popped up on foam tape.

The sentiment was gold-embossed onto black and die-cut with a banner die from Blueprints 27.

Thanks for visiting!
