It's time for a little Heartfelt Creations inspiration! Today I have a center step card using the Peacock Paisley Collection!
The main image is from the Peacock Swirls Set that I heat embossed with Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel on Natural White Cardstock and colored with chalk ink. I love this technique, so soft and elegant! I did the same with the Delightful Daisies flowers and leaves and the butterfly from the Butterfly Medley Set. The aqua mats for the 2 side and bottom front were done the same way without coloring. I also added dots of Bisque Liquid Pearls.
Here's a close up of the flowers for you.
It so disappointing when the camera doesn't capture the beauty of something I've created. This is much prettier in real life.
Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beauties by the designers this week! Also, Emma Lou has a sneak peek of the new collection being released next week, Everyday Heroes Collection.
I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
