Lavinia Stamps, PanPastels and a Nestabilities Heart

Hello, another Lavinia Stamps card to share with you today.
Using fabulous PanPastels to create the background.
I used a Nestabilities Heart Die Cut as a mask as 
I blended three of the Bright Yellow Green Shades together 
over the rest of the uncovered area.
Then I removed the positive Heart shape
 and replaced it with the negative Heart. 
Red Iron Oxide Tint, Pan colour, blended 
through the aperture adding Red Iron Oxide for shading. 
Finally, I removed the negative mask and with an eraser, 
just tidied up the edges of the Heart.
  On to the stamping with Versafine Ink, love this bit!
Every image here is from the Lavinia Stamps web shop.
I also completed a page in my Altered Art Dictionary
I belong to a group on Facebook.
Grab a dictionary, any size will do, plus some stamps
