Embellish with Hearts

 For the Embellish Magazine Color Challenge with Hearts, I decided to include my on-going Hexagon-A-Thon (by Schlosser Designs) roll by including it into my heart in a bit of an unexpected way. I created a graduated variation of reds and pinks with my hexagon-a-thon stamp, then positioned my heart nestie right where I wanted it over the design with removable scrapbooking tape then ran it through my CB. Lastly, I took the brush end of a black marker and outlined the heart onto another sheet of scrap paper, resulting in just the slightest outline on my heart, making it just "pop" a little more off the white b/g. I'm not crazy about how it photographed - this dingy winter sky thing is messing up my photos! But below there is a closer shot to give you a better idea of the heart interior. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
