 This is my entry for the Simply Less is More blog for this week - very late I know!  The brief this time was for a one layer card and the theme of Hearts - well with Valentines Day on the horizon - very handy!  I used a mask to make all the hearts, with Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler ink as it's a nice shade of red.  I stamped the rose in black versafine ink and then "painted it out" using bleach.  I love using bleach as it gives a quite a vintage feel to any project.  You can use just ordinary household bleach and if it's a bit thick, just water it down a bit. Remember to wash your brush out well afterwards or the next time you come to use it, there may be no bristles left!!  A very simple card, but effective. 
Hope you like it, and thank you for looking!

Have also entered this card in the Papermill Direct blog challenge  here :Papermill Direct
