AAA Challenge #167 - One Layer with Optional Twist Inspired by the graphic

I am so excited and honored to be a guest designer for AAA Cards Game #167.
The challenge is running for two weeks so there is plenty of time for everyone to jump onboard! Theme for this weeks is one layer with with optional twist inspired by the graphic.
I decided to create a heart with small stamped hearts inside of it. After looking thru my stash and unable to find the "right" kind of a heart stamp I decided to created my own stencil and use that instead. I hand drew  a heart on a piece of vellum and cut it out, thus creating a perfect stencil for my project.
I then used Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry and Violet to sponge my stencil.  With the stencil still attached to my cardstock, I used two small hearts (one a filled heart and the other one just an outline from Hero Arts My Monthly Hero 2019) to stamp little hearts in white and violet inside my big heart.
I am not sure if you can see a little spritz of perfect pearls mixed with water for a light shimmer? Because I was using Distress Oxides (which react with water),  I also got little speckles of lighter color inside the heart. The greeting is from an old Stampin Up set I found. Hope you enjoy this project! I sure did!
