If I Had 100 Hearts

Hi friends. It's a dark and rainy day here in North Carolina and I thought I share a few cards made with The Layered Rainbow Love Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. Here is the image from Mary Kay's website (the owner and operator of A Colorful Life Designs*:
There are 3 layers to color - so you receive 3 separate stencils which could be used each on its own. *Also, AnitaFan10 for 10% off your entire order (excluding bundles).
All the stencils were ink blended with Distress Inks.
The cute bears and sentiments from all these cards are by MFT Stamps, Stacey Yacula's Joyful Heart Bears. Discontinued at the MFT site, but available in other shops. I have the stamp and the coordinating die which I love, especially for images with strings!
All the images were stamped onto Ranger Ink Tim Holtz's Distress Watercolor Cardstock with Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink and watercolored with my Daniel Smith 238 Color Dot Cards. I love these cards for all the color selections, especially all the browns from which to choose! The dot cards work out so well for traveling and lunchtime coloring at the office, too.
Lots of options with this stencil, but I went with a monochromatic design. I love the sentiment: "Your Heart and My Heart are Very Old Friends" also from the same MFT Stamp set.
I left off all the bling and kept it simple.
I wanted to copy a description from the website at A Colorful Life Designs:
"Express yourself creatively by making a beautiful card, scrapbook page or other paper craft with this stencil. Each stencil is designed and laser cut by the A Colorful Life Designs team in Dallas, Texas. Our stencils are made of 7.5 mil Mylar, a thin plastic sheet that is flexible-yet-strong and oh-so-easy to clean. Use your stencils over and over again with inks, texture pastes, sprays, glitter gels, and other coloring mediums. 

Each order is shipped via the U.S. Postal Service. 

Thanks for supporting our small, woman-owned business!"

Thank you for joining me today. Stay warm and dry wherever you are~
