Ladies and gentlemen, Stephanie....

Hello everyone! It's Stephanie here and I'm excited to be back with another card to share using awesome products from Winnie & Walter!

For today's card, I used the So Tweet stamp set to create a clean and simple stamped design with some watercolouring, perfect for Valentine's Day! ;)

To create the card, I first stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto a watercolor panel cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I then stamped the two birds, one at a time, under the sentiment so they were positioned on either side of the heart. I love that once it's stamped, it all looks like one image.

I used my Kuretake Gansai watercolours to add colour first to the heart and the birds. I did red on the heart and yellow and blue on the birds. To get the desired affect, I laid down a first layer of colour, let it dry and then added a bit more colour on top.


When I had the heart and the bird images all coloured, I used a minty aqua green colour and loosely painted a heart around the birds. I started it small and then made it bigger until I had it how I wanted it. Once I had the shape figured out, I concentrated more of the colour on the outside of the heart and let it fade into the middle.

I finished the card by trimming down the panel 1/4" in diameter and then I added it to a grey card base and added some clear sequins for a bit of dimension.

You can see how I created my card in the video below:


Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today. I'll be back next Saturday with another card to share. ;)
