I used Theuva card and distress reinkers to make the background using the shaving foam technique that Barbara has demoed recently on her blog. I used the Mountains and Hills Mask and the Moons Masks to section off the areas before applying the shaving foam. I then stamped the little girl and the hearts foliage in black archival. I added a couple of swallows from Remountable Birdhouse Garden Set Of Clear Stamps.
I matted and layered onto matt black card and then pink centura pearl. I thought the pink gave it a more feminine edge! I used my perfect layers to mat and layer - I love these tools and wouldn't be without them now - perfect everytime!
