Magical Heart

Hi everyone.  I did more of a mixed media CAS card for today.  I sprinkled Lindy's magical powders (autumn crimson) on a piece of mixed media paper and spritzed with water.  Once dry, I die-cut the heart of hearts die.  I then took a second piece of mixed media paper and used acetate smooshing to add the same colour of magical powders to the background, along with gold perfect pearls.  I love this combination.  I took some leftover gold perfect pearls and added bits to the heart as well.  The sentiment is stamped in Delicata Gold which is the same shade of yellow gold.

I die-cut two foam pieces of the heart of hearts die and layered them together with the coloured one on top to give my die-cut some dimension.

Here's a close-up ...

  2. Great mix of mixed media. The crimson looks great with the gold perfect pearls and good to know that the delicata is the same shade of gold. Gorgeous and unique CAS card with fabulous mixing of the medias x

  17. Gorgeous colors! And what a fabulous die. These colors and powders really give this die a little something extra special. It's full of interest, yet it retains just the right amount of lovely white space. Love this. Have a great weekend. Bev
