Hearts and Crickets

I made this card for Sharon Johnson's (notimetostamp) Stamp Simply Challenge ssnotime121, which was to use a heart or love theme on your card. I'm using a soon-to-be released set called Shadows of Memories over at Mark's Finest Papers.

I stamped the image using Palette Noir Black, colored it with Copic markers, and then cut it out at an angle to mimic the side of the heart. It's hard to see but I used a clear glitter pen on the wings of the dragonflies and on the butterfly. Sponging on both panels help to accent the stamping. I added some twine and an oriental charm to finish it off. I'm loving those charms that Faith has in her store. Both the heart and the oval are popped up on dimensionals so that the twine can go underneath of them.

All supplies are available at Mark's Finest Papers.
