Hearts and Flowers

My three cards tonight are for a swap on one of my groups. All of them use a back ground tech. of hair mousse and re-inkers. Can't find the directions right now but you use Mousse and reinkers on a piece of foil or wax paper ( I put it on one side then folded the foil in half to make a different pattern) you then put your cardstock piece into the colored mousse, lift it off and let it dry. Mine didn't dry as fast as I wanted so I sprinkled on some clear embossing powder and heat set it. Turned out pretty good. When I do this again I will use less ink so it doesn't blob up on me.
Now for this card it is in two card challenges, #1 Card positioning systems sketch challenge and # 2 the Daring card makers challenge to use something with a point. I used verse mark to stamp hearts with arrows through them, a strip of my background paper, silk flowers with jewel centers. Enjoy, Janet
