make a hot glue stencil out of heart, I used this file : doodle hearts and printed in on copy paper and traced it with my hot glue gun onto my silicon mat. (here is a video tutorial)
Then spray your water color paper with red ink, before it drys blot off the ink so you have a pink back ground water color paper. then put on your heart hot glue stencil and spray with the same red spray with a couple of coats, you want it nice and red. let it dry, remove the stencil. add velum, sentiment, and heart. it seems really involved but once you have the stencil you can use it for so many projects. I really am pleased how it turned out.
