BF February moo swap

Instead of a twinchies swap this month on the BF forum, Carol invited us to make moos to swap. I've made some of these before, but quite a while ago. The topic is 'red for passion'.

I certainly got inky and messy in a good cause this morning, but things that I tried didn't go to plan (not that I had much of a plan in the first place) - I just had to go from plan A to plan B and so on. I even got the melting pot out to cover some moos in UTEE, but abandoned that idea.

Eventually I hit upon the right plan. I made up a mist, combining water, raspberry red cosmi shimmer and a brush full of garnet H2Os and then sprayed on to white card. When this was dry I used the Anita's hearts stamp seven times with fired brick DI and then cut down to moo size. I then applied glue to the edges of each one and dipped in Art institute ultra fine retro red glitter.

This is supposed to show the shimmer of the misting, but, unfortunately, it doesn't really:
