Last year I was lucky enough to receive a fabulous stencil from Redlead, Art Start Pinked Heart. When I was thinking about submitting some heart themed cards to Stampington’s Take Ten, I decided I wanted the stencil to feature. The downside, the cards have to be quick makes and must feature stamping. If it weren’t for the wee bits of this ‘n’ that, they would be one layer cards.
Obviously I was so happy when I knew they were all published in Take Ten (Winter 2016), gathered as a feature, Heart-to-Heart.

With the cards being so small in stature I decided not to share any detail photographs as all the details show up on the main photos.
I was aiming for a quick way to apply the paint and also achieve a dreamy quality. One of the wonderful aspects of Frescos (Sherbert, Blush and Nougat) they dry so quickly, perfect when challenged with cards that need to be made within ten minutes or less!
On the cover of this issue it is noted as a “Fast Faux Watercolour”, I suppose the effect does have the appearance of watercolour but I was still surprised to see them categorised as that. The paints were applied with a baby wipe.
All of the sentiments are from one fabulous Redlead set (see supplies).
At times, altering the orientation of the sentiment by inking up a word at a time to best suit the layout.
Each card topped off with sweet embellishments, really just anything I found to suit the theme.Thank you to Stampington for publishing this collection and thank you for your visit to this blog post.
