watercolor paper that had already been colored using Distress inks. It had been in my stash for weeks, and I'd stared at it long enough trying to decide what to do with it! I loved the soft colors and thought it would work with her!
After I printed her, I added some Titanium White paint mixed with some clear gesso around her to soften the background and make her pop a little more.

white gelly roll pen and my Studio 490 Hearts stencil to surround her with the large heart. Then I mixed some of the Titanium White paint with some Glazing Acrylic Fluid Medium and began to paint from the heart outline out towards the background, allowing the paint to fade out as I pulled. This made the "halo" of the heart shimmery!

Thanks so much for stopping in for a visit!
