Feminine Theme for no 243 challenge at TCCC blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My creativity led me to layer pink crystal gems over a white glitter decorative tape. I think this is the first time I've done that. I wanted to use the pink gems but with them being about the same size as the pink dots of the patterned paper, I knew that wouldn't look good. They would just get lost. So that's why I thought of layering. And it's just enough tone to mask the print! Cool! That made my heart happy!

Another happy heart moment was with the laser cut wood posy getting colored with a pink marker and then layered with my gold glitter paint pen on top. <3

Challenge #243(? or is it 242? theme is feminine and starts 15 May 2020. The next challenge comes on June 1st for The Crafter's Café Challenge blog. The sponsor is My Besties and I have the privilege of using their "Flowerpot Girl" image 832.
