Mixed Media Fusion Challenge Friday! It's a date.

This week's Birgit is giving a heart challenge. Use them! Love those kinds of challenges. 
Come join us with MIX54: HEARTS.

I used the same paper for my base as this card a few weeks ago. I added stamped hearts in white, black and second off (stamp on a scrap paper first then onto your project) after brushing some green acrylic paint around  the edges and the sentiment.

It's kind of a blur to the steps because I would stamp the small hearts, paint, stamp, paint and then add the tape.  The tape was chosen because I intended to use the yummy new ribbon from Verve, I had it all tied and pretty, but then my stamping was off and I would cover up the focal heart too much or the sentiment. So the ribbon is ready for another project. I'm already ahead of the game.

It's always a creative process and I know I'm not alone.

I've got this card in sync with a few challenges!
