I managed to squeeze in some time today to get a card made for a couple of challenges.  I’ve combined the sketch from The Paper Players with the technique from Shopping Our Stash.

I started by die cutting a heart from white cardstock.  I dripped some pink and red inks onto a piece of acetate and pushed the heart into the puddles for the smooshing technique.  While the ink was drying, I cut a few more hearts so I could stack them all for dimension.  I decided to keep the card base very clean and simple by not embellishing the red cardstock for the top of the sketch, but I used shimmery white cardstock for the card base to give a subtle hint of something special.
