Folk Art Heart

Wanted to make a few cards with a design in the shape of a heart in a folk art style. Used an older but wonderful set designed by Julie Ebersole for Ellen Hutson -- Autumn Acorns.

Penciled in a heart on copy paper and then made a practice card with just black ink. This avoids wasting a lot of cardstock trying to fit in the leaves and acorns. I kind of liked the black and white only and may go back and make another with just black ink.

For these I used Distress Oxide Inks, which are perfect for solid images.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Delighted, except it's time to make dinner...


  1. One of the few sets from that line I don't own ... it never spoke to me, but when I see what you created with it, I wish I had it.

  2. Joan I purchased this older set very recently - I love your darling hearts!

  3. Oh, I especially love the colorful one. Nice way to bring out of the box colors to fall. Very cute!

  4. Love these! Fabulous designing Joan!
