Pink Hearts and Straw.....

Two cards for today on separate blog posts....
Messy and fun couple of days....

 The first card is inspired by two challenges..
A photo and Sweet Hearts themed challenge......

I started by stamping the chevron in pink to represent the straw in the photo.
I sprayed CS with a couple of Pink Sprays and Mica for the background.
The pink milk was the inspiration here.
I used a stamplorations stencil and embossing paste to do the hearts.
The hearts took on the colours of the sprays underneath and are a pretty graduation effect.
The embossing paste was inspired by the icing and texture on the heart biscuits.
I popped white glitter on some of them like the pink hearts in the photo.
The sentiment has been die cut and raised up on a couple of layers.
The edges have been embossed with silver embossing powder.
The photos really don't show how pretty these sprays are and how graduated the colours of the hearts are in real life. I enjoyed these two challenges.
