Foiled heart.

Hi everyone, have you had a chance to play along at  CAS Stencil this month yet?
 The theme is foiling, lots of fun.

I needed a valentine card for hubby and thought a blue heart wouldn't be too mushy for him lol!

I spread some deco transfer gel through this tiny triangle stencil and when it dried, placed some heat transfer foil on top, pretty side up! Then I put it through my laminator.
I added some distress ink to the white base, wiped off the excess with a baby wipe, then diecut the heart.

The diecut sentiment is embossed with lapis pearl embossing powder, the blue is a pretty good match for the foil I think!

Here's a closer look.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

This is gorgeous Cathy and the little triangles of dark blue foil look great against the light blue of the heart, and the added heat embossed sentiment looks perfect with it. x
