Have a heart

This card was created after my class a couple weeks ago with Marjie Kemper.  The background color here is a bit more subdued when compared to the bold, saturated colors for the pieces we created in the class. 

Marjie provided us with a heart stencil, so when I came home I decided to test it out using the Golden Glass Bead Gel. It's a product I mentioned in one of my very first posts in January.  I also used it on a card recently, with a numbers stencil. 

The Golden Glass Bead gel goes on clear and when dry, leaves a layer of glass beads.  In this case I decided I wanted to have a purple glass bead heart. So I used the Distress Stains to tint the gel.  I applied a layer to the stencil, smoothed it evenly and then lifted off the stencil.  I let it dry overnight and finished by stamping hearts, adding arrows and a cute candy heart brad to finish it off.  

It's no irony that I love this heart!
