I lightly brushed the ink blended through the stencil using Tattered Rose and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks and more of the pink in the centre and then the lilac on the outer edges fading it out, and keeping the stencil in place I transferred it to my Misti and stamped the rose heart with Dusty Concord DI, several times and with firm pressure to get a good impression, as obviously it is more difficult stamping through the mylar stencil. I then coloured the stamping with my Inktense Pencils and a waterbrush following the image from the packing as there are only bits of it showing through the stencilled shapes. I wasn't quite happy with it as it was so decided to use the a heart die to give it a heart shape and marked around the inside of it with a pencil just within the open areas of the stencil, and then inked over it with a black micron pen.
To finish I cut it with a stitched square die and added some Salty Ocean DI over the white lines within the heart shape and also around the edges, again using a brush, and then added the sentiment with Versafine Deep Lagoon ink before adhering it to my 6" square white card.
