Chocolate Baroque: Leafy Hearts of Gold

Hello, there! It's Friday the 13th.... eeeek!

It's been a week since I posted anything. Mr Mojo is not back from his Christmas back... probably drunk in a ditch somewhere. I'm flying solo here. :)

If your mojo needs a little nudge, make sure you catch our lovely Lesley Wharton on Hocahnda TV. She'll be showcasing the stamps I used for my project today and many more gorgeous Chocolate Baroque stamps you'll recognise.

Today's card is a big one at 5½" square. I started by inking the card with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and stamping Big Bold Background Belle Flowers with the same ink.

Next I heat embossed the leafy heart from Harlequin Rose with WOW Gold Rich Embossing Powder onto burgundy card stock  Then I fussy cut the hearts and adhered them to the card base.

In order to make the leaves pop, I used Faber Castell Polychromos to lift the gorgeous design. And yes... there are a few little green blings. Couldn't help myself!
