I started by coloring the tree with a green and brown Copic marker.
I applied several tiny dots of glossy accents at a time to the leaves.
I used my QuickStik to pick up the tiny hearts and applied them to the glossy accents. The tiny hearts kept wanting to pick back up with the QuickStik so I held them in place with my leaf tool while I lifted the sticky tip away. This really is the perfect tool for picking up tiny pieces like the hearts.
Here’s a close up view to show the lightly rounded hearts and branches. Just that simple step adds so much depth and interest to the hearts and branches.
I attached the fence to the front of my frame with ATG adhesive.
I created a heart garden using the same technique to attached the hearts to the grass stems as with the tree. I attached a small grassy border in front of it to give a clean finish.
I attached thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the flower garden and attached it directly over top of the fence.
I attached mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the blue card base.
I attached very thin strips of mounting tape to the trunk of the tree so it could stand free away from the blue background.
I can never resist using a few butterflies to add a few more pops of color and interest to the scene.
