Happy Ending

The new Wendy Vecchi challenge on Facebook and the Make ART Challenge blog this month is 'Hearts' and with a spare hour this morning I made a dent in my journal! The base was PaperArtsy paints (Beach Hut, Limelight, Chalk and Sherbet) with accents using Wendy's stencils with Broken China Distress Ink. I have left quite a lot of blank space because I loved the sherbet background so much I didn't want to spoil it!

I used a variety of Wendy's stamps to build up my background, and a few  of her stencilled images! The quotation is one of her stamps but the stamped image was too small so I used letter stamps to spell it out.
The heart was stamped on card and adhered over the top of the leaves. I coloured it with layers of Portfolios. Thanks for popping by.
EDIT: this page had a happy ending as I won the challenge! Thank you again to Kim, Linda and Wendy! I'm thrilled! To be honest - I had so much fun making the page that that was reward enough!

It's beautiful, Gabrielle!! I love the way the heart looks as if it's hanging on the stamped 'spring'.
