It's Wednesday and that means a new challenge at Flutter By Wednesday.  This week our challenge is to to use a heart(s) in your project and to include a butterfly or fairy! 
I have been seriously lacking in mojo so I decided to fall back on my go to technique which is masking and using negative space.  I cut a scalloped heart out of a 4.25" square masking paper and adhered the square piece with the negative space onto the front of the card.  I then sponged some Distress Inks into the negative space and stamped the wildflower set from Sweet 'N Sassy with Versafine Onyx Black into the heart while the mask was still in place.  I then removed the mask and there you have it!
For more inspiration please stop in at the Flutter By Wednesday blog to see all the beautiful projects by the rest of the DT.  Link your project up to InLinkz so we can all see what you have created.
Thanks for coming by!

  2. This is one of my most favorite techniques--I have a ton of negative spaces saved, I just need to use them.
    Wonderful, wonderful card!

  3. Hi Harriet. Gorgeous colors and sponging. Love the scalloped heart shape - really stunning. Loll xx

  4. Harriet, this is a lovely design, and how clever of you to cut the heart shape. Nicely done, lady!

  5. Very pretty card. I love the colors you used.

  6. This is beautiful, Harriet! These are my fave colors. It looks like you found your mojo!

    (I loved that class, too, and didn't finish all of it. I hope to go back in this weekend and do some of the cards and techniques I didn't get done. Hope you have a wonderful long weekend!)

  7. You always find the best techniques to use...old and new! A wonderful card Harriet!

  8. I really like how you achieved the heart

  9. Beautiful! I love how you used the masking. Thanks for the reminder of this technique.
