Swirly Swirl Heart

Hello friends
 
I've just done two full days at my city job, I know it doesn't sound much
but because of other commitments, snow and more
it is the first time in ages that I've actually done two full days there.
They were surprised to see me too!
 
I'm much happier crafting away in my cabin and I intend to do a lot of
that this weekend.  Talking of craft...
how about a swirly project?
It is actually Swirl Heart, one of the new arrival dies -
On the Wings of Love Collection designed by Joanne Fink.

I selected a piece of white smooth card and applied Colour Cloud Inks,
I've been using these as an alternative now and again to Distress Inks and
I really like them.
You'll note that no neatness is necessary, just splodge the colours!


I used my coloured card to die cut the heart and placed a silver mirror card
drop shadow behind, yes still using that mirror card!
I then affixed the heart to a white card mat cut with Scored and Pierced Rectangles.

 
I featured the circles recently. I love the subtlety of these.
 
A further couple of mats - black and silver mirror card all cut with

 
The sentiment was typed and die cut with hand cut silver and black card mats.


 
Items used today with clickable links:
 
 
the Classics can be seen here - the Fancy Edged designs are lovely too.
 
Wishing you all a great Saturday, I'm just off to check my mirror card
stock, I fear I could be down to just a couple of sheets! Yikes! 
 
Take care friends.
