Hello hello hello! Hope everyone is doing well and ready start the second month of 2017. I can’t believe January is already almost over. I’m working on Valentine’s Day cards since it’s a few short weeks away.


I used some distress inks to color my background and then made a stencil using the die. I placed is randomly on the watercolor base and used some distress glaze to create a barrier. I then sprayed the panel heavily with water and took it paper towels to soak up the water to lighten up the color.

I used my scraps from the the original panel to die cut some smaller heart to scatter on the card. I heat embossed part of my sentiment and die cut the other with black card stock. Once all my elements were on the panel, I adhered it to a glittered cardbase and added Wink of Stella to the die cut word.
