You make my heart dance

Valentine's Day is coming and even though I have no one to celebrate with, I still made a Valentine's Day card. I just bought one of the new Dylusions stamp sets and couldn't help imagining pairing the legs with a heart.

I covered a die cut paper heart with crumpled tissue  and then stenciled over top with pearlescent paste. When I attached the legs, I cut the image apart so that the legs could be positioned more like a chorus line dancer. I love how flexible Dylusions stamps can be! To give the card motion, I added springs behind the heart and legs. The final touch was a slightly skewed background (again, to capture the idea of movement).

This was fun and simple to create and it just makes me smile.

Thank you to the following challenges for the inspiration:
