MailART Monday: The Heart Collector

It's about that time of year where hearts are all over the place. Since it's always good to send out mail to loved ones and now it's a great excuse to use all those hearts stamps and a splash of red. I used a couple of my recent Stampotique Originals Stamps for this MailART monday.

The heart collector

My focal image is the Queen of Hearts by Janet Klein and the background is Daniel's Hearts by Daniel Torrente.

The process of these envelopes are actually quite simple, yet effective. I stamped the queen, masked her off with a space next to her for the address. Then stamped the hearts with Ladybug Red from Memento and colored them in with Caran d'Ache aquarelle pencils. The discovery set is from the december Art Snacks box.

The heart collector
Colored the queen in with alcohol markers, accents with a white gel pen and a bronze edding, chose some fun postage stamps to go with it and that's it!

These were sent to my partner's for last month's swap. Glad they got received well :)

I am entering this for the Love Bug SDC266 Challenge at the Stampotique Designer's Blog. My bug (besides using the Ladybug ink from memento ;) is Johnny Bravo! When he loves you, he bugs you, haha :)

Also entering this in the "30 minute or less"Challenge at Country View Challenges. These envelopes take less then 30 minutes to make and one you get going, you can make a whole lot of them ;) 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day (and a wonderful valentine's day tomorrow!)
