Rebecca Sinz's Bleeding Hearts

My rather awesome - and very arty and talented - niece turned 18 recently and of course I had to send her a card...
I decided to use one of Rebecca Sinz's awesome digi stamps from Sweet Pea Stamps and for this card I chose Bleeding Hearts:
I love Rebecca's striking women and in particular her series of flower-themed portraits. I coloured Bleeding Hearts with my Promarkers and added some accents with a white gel pen.
I teamed the image with some gorgeous papers in rich, purple shades and lots and lots of pretty die-cuts and punches. I embellished the edge of my card using a decorative scrollwork die and then layered over bronze coloured cardstock, which I edged with a scroll edge punch.
I cut a delicate lattice using a Marianne Creatables die and layered this over the left side of the card.
I matted my image onto bronze card and attached it with foam pads, layering a decorative die-cut corner under it.
To finish I added layered metal and paper flowers and a greeting stamped and heat embossed and cut into a pennant shape.
I also decorated the inside of the card, to increase the contrast behind the die-cut edge.
This gorgeous image is available in red rubber or digi format from the Sweet Pea Stamps store.
