It is time for another twofer challenge, this really is one of my favorite challenges and really has me thinking about my stamps in a whole new way, which I LOVE.  This month it was to use hearts.  I did this after valentine's day, so I needed to get creative and bust out some non valentine's day cards.  The first with the alien, I actually did earlier and added the glassy accents and wink of stella pen to the balloon.  
Now for card number two, It really is made with the heart.  I used distress inks and watercolored it to create the base of the flower.  For the outline of the flower, I used the heart stamp as a guide to manipulate the stitched border stamp.  I think it turned out fun. 

Here is the finished card.

 Here is a close up of the glossy detail that I added to the first card.

Lot's of photos this post.  You can tell it is a weekend and snowing so it is a craftery kinds of day!

It's a good life!
