I had a pre-coloured little elephant from the Adorable Elephants set (I used Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers on Bristol Smooth cardstock) which I wanted to use. First I created the background by sponging Distress Oxide inks on Bristol Smooth cardstock, then added more ink through the Staggered hearts stencil. I moved the stencil several times and added more ink for more dimension. The Colours used are: Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick.

I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die after it dried. I also cut a Linked Chain Circle Frame from white cardstock and a heart using a die from MFT Blueprints 22. On this piece I sponged the same Distress Oxide inks and added some splatters using Aged Mahogany distress ink. I added this darker colour to the edges, to make the heart stand out. I also spritzed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a bit of sparkle.

When it was done, I put some Crystal glaze Nuvo Drops on the entire piece but it looked like a big blob so I removed it all with a piece of typing paper. Still it left some residue which gives a subtle shine to the heart embellishment.

The sentiment is from the More Essential sentiments set, white heat embossed on black cardstock. I used 3D foam tape when assembling the card and little heart sequins from Pretty Pink Posh as final touches.
