Doodles and Hearts and Duos = LOVE!

 I really LOVE how this card turned out! It features just one of the new Stencil Duo sets designed by Fran Seiford. Each set provides two stencils (one open design, and one pattern design), along with a doodling pen and a set of small white notecards. This set is called "Heart Duos".

My card base is a soft purple, stamped and embossed in black using the "Cling Penned Love" sentiment. A green panel has been run through my Big Shot Pro to emboss the pattern design, and a green ink has been brushed over the raised surface to highlight the design. The corners have been rounded, and the square panel has been matted in white  before being adhered to the card using Zip Dry adhesive.

The focal point is this beautiful heart, layered with the pattern stencil on the bottom, and the open heart over the top, taped to the Mixed Media cardstock. The design has been traced using the included pen. The patterned stencil has been removed, and the heart traced around the design. Doodles have been added with the pen as well, and the pattern has been colored with markers.

With the open heart back over the surface and taped on all four sides with removable tape, and using the Dreamweaver Paste Spreader, Translucent Paste has been swiped over the surface. The stencil has been carefully removed to be cleaned with water and a soft nail brush. The panel has been set aside to dry. Once dry, the heart was cut out, and popped up over the patterned green square with foam tape.

I love the Heart Whimsy card you did with the stencil. It's very pretty but I don't understand how you made it. Please share.It looks like a die. Thanks.
