I Heart U

I'm sure you've seen the Heart Burst Stencil making the rounds recently. There's a reason for that! It's such a simple stencil to customize however you want to match your style. 

On Deluxe Smooth White Cardstock I inked over the stencil with my blending brushes in the following colors: Mist, Soft Blossom, Lemon Yellow, and Pink Grapefruit. I then masked off the 'rays' of the stencil leaving only the center heart exposed. That was filled in using the Palette Knife with Hero Arts Glitter Paste and waited for it to dry naturally.

The die cut portion of the sentiment uses the I Love U Stamp and Cut bundle. I was torn between wanting lighter or darker letters, so I made both to compare. This is a great side-by-side of the Hero Arts Iridescent embossing powders depending on if you use a white paste or a black paste. The top cut out uses Black Wax with Iridescent Blue and also Iridescent Purple embossing powders sprinkled on top. The bottom cut out uses plain Hero Paste with the same embossing powders. Both were heated and embossed with my strong heat tool. The difference is dramatic!

I opted to use the white lettering. The softer look matched the card better, and the shine is so so pretty! I die cut the letters using my Compact Cutter.

The center 'love' sentiment is also from the I Love U bundle, stamped in Arctic ink. The panel was splattered with Yellow + Copper Metallic Spray, then glued onto an Arctic Cardstock A2 card base.
