Watercolor Valentine



Papertrey Ink has an incredible 10 days of celebration for their 9th anniversary! Work has interfered with my participation, but I had to
get at least one card made for their Create Along With Us challenge. (edited to add: Oops!  Collection was already closed - insert sad face here). We were to select a team member's creation from this month's release that inspired us.  That was no small feat, but one of my faves was Amy Sheffer's color palette and design on her post hereI watercolored the background using Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron distress inks.  I'm also playing along with The Card Concept challenge #48 where I would guess my style is clean and layered.  Here's what I used...

STAMPS: Bitty Bouquets (PTI).
PAPER: Hawaiian Shores (PTI), Ranger watercolor CS.
INK: Melon Mambo (SU), Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers (TH distress ink). 
DIES: Bitty Bouquets (PTI), Wet Paint (PTI), Sketch Heart (Simon Says Stamp). 

Thanks for stopping by...
