Hinged Card with Spellbinders

I'm am just so in love with this new technique...well, new to me. Isn't it lovely?
It's the Hinged technique that I saw over on Becca Freeken's blog. Oh my gosh, she does beautiful work.
This card was made with Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Labels 8
Hand Painted Roses fussy cut around.
Center stamp by Just Rite and colored with Tim Holtz markers, top wings with Pink Liquid Pearls and a Gel paint to add the dots.

The top layer is adhered with foam dots for dimension

I made this for this Challenge over at Just Rite: Spring

Hearts a fluttering

Cuttlebug embossed heart background
Spellbinders Floral Ovals *used the wax paper from the layered die cut*
Hearts were cut with the cricut and embellished with Stickles
Spellbinders tag stamped with sentiment 

Victorian Lady

This pretty lady is stamped with archival black ink, and colored with my new Distress Ink markers. It's a learning curve for sure, and I've got some work to do, but I'm liking how they work.  They are best used on Watercolor paper...cold pressed for this image and die cut from
Spellbinders Ovals and the Oval floral die for it's background.
Hand rolled rose and Martha Stewart punched leaves.
What didn't show up in the photo is some diamond sparkles in her necklace and earings. Kinda reminds me of the Blue Heart necklace for the Titanic movie. Why Rose threw it in the ocean in the end, I'll never understand!
