Making Valentines

Now is the time to bring out your heart and Valentine stamps and accessories to create some cards for those your love.  For this card I used the Greeting Card Kids stamp set, an Aquapainter, watercolor paper, and a few ink pads.  My favorite method of water coloring is to squeeze an ink pad to collect ink in the lid and to pick it up with an Aquapainter.

For this card I mixed a few ribbons and layered them on a strip of Blushing Bride and First Edition DSP.  The card base is Soft Suede.  A few added touches finish the card...Smooch Spritz, Basic Pearls, Vintage Trinkets, and a bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the crinoline.

Happy Valentine craftin, Elizabeth
