House of Cards - February Challenge

Hi everyone!

February is the month of Love, so let's go for a Love theme at House of Cards!
We have a wonderful inspiration photo - (please see below).

I was inspired by the image and the colors!

Can you believe that these hearts are made with hot glue!

It is already the second time that I use this technique and I am every time fascinated by the result! 
I started to put hearts on a piece of white paper with a hot-glue gun. 
After that, I heated the hearts with my heat gun, added white embossing powder, heated it to the melting point and repeated the whole once more. As soon as the hearts were cold, I wet the paper with a brush and water and added pink watercolor - and as long as the paint was wet, I added a large drop of silver pigment ink (IZINK) and let it fuse with the pink!
After drying, I mounted the colored panel with foam pads to a bigger white panel and then to my card base!
The sentiment is stamped with Onyx Black (Versafine) and Melon Mambo (StampinUp)
It says something like:
a bit, very much,

Are you curious how I've discovered this technique? 
Take a peek to my first attempt, here you will also find a link to a video that explains everything best!

Here a closer look to the silver effect - these shiny things are very hard to catch!

....and this is our 
Love Theme and/or Colors

Have fun!

  7. Isn't that the coolest, artsy-est technique? I've done it with normal kid's glue too - just have to wait a little longer til it sets up but you have better control of your squiggles ;)
