Key to My Heart Canvas

This week starts a new challenge at Frosted Designs - Get Messy!!  Use at least 2:  Mist, Ink, paint, molding paste and/or gesso.

I used a 6 x 6 canvas, some mists, ink and paint to create my project. 
I started out with this canvas from the Forever Yours Kit and some Dylusions Ink. 
I misted and misted and layered the Bubblegum Pink and After Midnight Dylusions Ink. 
I placed the Mini Love Post template over my canvas and used White Linen Dylusions Ink over the template.  The strangest thing happened - my colors did not turn white (as I expected) they became more vibrant!! 
I loved it even more!! 
I used up the drops of extra ink with a paper towel and inked the sides of the canvas.  I then inked the edges of the canvas with Picket Fence distressed paint. 
I added a bit of detailing on the edges and the hearts with African Jade Silks Acrylic Glaze.  I love the depth this blue adds.
I really did not want to cover up too much of my canvas.  I hand cut a heart out of an adhesive piece of canvas.  I used Pearlescent Orchid Dew Drop ink and Teal Damask ink to add dimension to the heart.  I added the pearls and lace (from Sweet Love Kit) and key to finish the canvas.  I call this Key to My Heart.
