Lots going on today at Heartfelt Creations! First, today is the release of the new Romantique Garden Collection!
Love is in full bloom with the Romantique Garden collection from Heartfelt Creations. A romantic symphony composed in subtle shades of pink, fuchsia, green, cream and charcoal harmonizes beautifully with picturesque images of dainty hummingbirds, devoted love birds, graceful swans and delicate bleeding heart bushes. Ornate ironwork backgrounds are in perfect harmony with layered elements of vintage sheet music, lace, flowing handwriting, scrollwork, florals, stripes and flourishes. Six hand drawn stamp sets capture the idyllic beauty of a peaceful garden where swans glide across the surface of a glassy lake, nesting lovebirds are wreathed in flowers, and hummingbirds sip nectar from blossom laden branches of exquisite beauty. The coordinating die cuts feature elegant swirled stems, a graduated set of bleeding heart blossoms and a majestic pair of swimming swans. Dreamy and idyllic, uplifting and inspiring, romantic and moving as a masterfully scored concerto, this enchanting collection is a celebration of love and life amidst the extraordinary beauty of nature.
Next, there are some fun Black Friday specials going on today only! You can check them all out here on the HC Blog!
Here is my first card using this beautiful new collection!
Such a sweet image of birds and bleeding hearts! I colored this and the flowers with pencils and mineral spirits. The flowers are from an old Posy Patch stamp and die that go with this image perfectly. I love that HC often designs their new products to go with older ones! The leaves and corner flourish are from the Cut Mat Create Collection, I love both of these under the flowers.
Be sure to visit the HC Blog today to see the gorgeous collection of projects by the designers this week along with some fun Black Friday specials to indulge in if you choose!
I'm submitting this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #160 - Anything Goes.
