I am adding to my post some directions as to how I created these hearts.
"Hearts with DecoArt Love"
 Trace hearts onto cardboard substrate and cut out.
Using Decoart Media Gesso in white,cover both sides of hearts
When dry,coat each heart,both sides with 
Americana Lace Chalky finish
 Add color using DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish and Multi Surface Satin paints
 Stencil background with lightest color and continue to
Add more color using other stencils or stamps
Mix together Glamour Dust and Americana Glazing medium and coat over each​ ​heart
  Coat hearts with Americana DuraClear Gloss Varnish

Fancy cut Gecko Galz and other graphics 
and decorate to your heart is content!

These hearts are so out-of-this-world magical! The bright colours and the glitter are truly enchanting. It's not hard to see which one was intended for the boy recipient - you managed to smuggle some fairytale magic into the boy design too! The froggies are so cute! I'm sure they all adored them!
