woodware Design Team Challenge - Heart for my sweetheart

This card is too late for 'Valentines' but my feeling is that hearts can be used all year round and for lots of occasions. It's nice to feel love all year round. The elements all come from a very 'hearty' set! 

FRCL149 Lots of Hearts

Its one of these sets that cries out to be coloured in... or maybe not as you could go classic black and white with bright red hearts. So it will lend itself to lots of different schemes. My scheme is very sugary!! but I do love  pink, lime green and orange as a combination. 

I have stamped the panels several times on different coloured card and paper pieced the hearts. I have shadowed the hearts using a VersaMark pen. Its a marker type pen that contains the same ink as in the pad. I have then highlighted the hearts with a white gel pen. The little kisses are a small stamp in the set but easy enough to stamp a border with.

Pop along to the Woodware Blog to see other great ideas for this challenge


  1. A very bright and cheerful card Francoise, just love the colours !! Its amazing how your shading around the hearts and the white high lights really make them pop !! Fab !!

  2. A really suprising colour scheme but the card looks great. I can't believe you actually paper pieced all those little hearts - what dedication!
