What came up for me was layers of color and texture. Last week I bought a gelli plate and have been watching lots of you tube videos on techniques. :o) AND THEN, I saw a beautiful design Dina shared on her blog - you can see it here. So when I saw the words "layers," paint/ink and texture popped into my mind. :o)
I started with a piece of Cryogen cardstock. I just love the subtle sparkle that comes through the coloring. I spritzed with water and then added blue and green inks. I laid a piece of cling wrap over it and an acrylic block to hold it down.
To add texture, I used a variety of things - a stencil, a thingy that was put around a wine bottle I bought and of course, bubble wrap. :o)
For my focal image, I used images from the Heart Set (Sku#4217) - stamped them in white, sprinkled with white emboss powder, heat set and cut them out.
For a few added details, I used a white pen to create a double line boarder frame, and also to frame the hearts on the front. I popped up the top heart.
On the inside I added one of the hearts I cut out and sentiment from the set.
