Mixed Media Hearts

Howdy, Hi and Hello!  Happy to see you!   The  Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  this week is to be inspired by the letter "H".  With Valentine's day sneaking up on us I was drawn to hearts for my letter "H" inspiration. There are so many different ways to interpret this challenge and if you join in and play with us there is always a chance for a $50 gift voucher at Simon Says Stamp

I have been playing with messy backgrounds quite a bit lately.  Mixing in the sprays and the paints and stamping.
This background actually I created a while ago and loved the colors and effect and set it aside to come back to. It seemed a nice combination of colors for Valentine's so out it came from my scrap folder. It is a mix of sprays dripped and mixed with water. and then a splattering of sprays and paint over the top.

I added a touch of tissue tape in the center.  I traced the big heart with watercolor pencils and then added the second heart and softened both with a waterbrush.

After that I stamped the letters using ranger archival ink and added he little tags with the pin. I love how this turned out.
