Globecraft Piccolo Heart Trio Card


I have a card loaded with hearts for you today.  I was playing around with the Piccolo 3D Gels the other day and wondered if they would react the same as icing on a cake.  Well, I am happy to say they do.   For both hearts, I put down a base of 3D Gel,  Deep Red for the top heart and Pink Rose (on clearance) for the bottom heart.  Then I just dotted the other colors onto the heart and pulled the color around with a toothpick.  You can get some really cool effects. I finished them off with a coat of Instant UV Resin to give them a glass like finish. 


For the center heart, I die cut the smaller of the hearts from the Cheery Lynn Designs Two of Hearts.   Using Ruby Red Slippers Enamel, I heat embossed the filligree heart from the Piccolo Love with all my Heart Charms set adding the Love which I heat embossed with 24kt Gold Enamel.   Then I just centered it onto my die cut heart.  Be sure to click on the pic above to see the beauty of these enamels.  I used my Cheery Lynn Designs Hearts and Rose Leaves embossing plate for the white and gold panel.  I added Shades Valentine dye ink to the plate before embossing the white panel so the ink transferred over.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
