Love all the elements you placed together in this pretty card!
This is so pretty Anne! Love the heart and the patterned paper fits so well with the colour of the heart. Lovely colouring of the focal image too. TFS!
OH-O I always love your intaglio embellishments Anne! Like how you included so many alphabet items on one card. Beautiful card!
Project - Bird Garden with Intaglio Heart

I created this for Two Peas' Stamping A to Z Event. For the G is for… (Glossy Accents), H is for… (Hero Arts and heat embossing) and J is for… (jewels) challenges.
The focal piece for this card is Hero Arts H5396 Bird Garden, stamped using Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink onto 140# watercolor paper. After the pigment ink dried, I colored in the image using Prismacolor Premier colored pencils.
I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Large Rectangles to die cut and dry emboss it, and Classic Large Scalloped Rectangles to die cut and dry emboss the matte. I wrapped the focal piece with Together Twine (baker's twine) from My Mind's Eye's Lime Twist collection, then adhered it to the matte. Then I added clear jewels from Hero Arts CH117 Assorted Crystal Gemstones.
The intaglio heart is punched from chipboard, and colored to match. I heat embossed multiple layers of ultra thick embossing enamel (UTEE) on top, using my Heat It craft tool (heat gun). I pressed Hero Arts H5261 Flourish Trio into VersaMark watermark ink to prevent it from sticking, and then pressed it into the still-warm UTEE, and left it there until the UTEE cooled. Once it was cool, I removed the stamp and had this great, handmade intaglio embellishment.
Background is paper from BasicGrey's Recess 6x6 paper pad. I adhered the focal image and matte, and then attached the intaglio heart with foam squares for dimension. Ranger Stickles glitter glue in Crystal (similar to Diamond) was used to accent the two blue birds. And, Glossy Accents was added to accent the purple butterfly.
Thanks for looking! :-)
