CUTplorations Challenge | Love Always

Valentine’s Day is 10 days away… Are you ready? I am ready for some love cards and chocolate from my favorite people… LOL LOL LOL!!! I believe you all have some special ways of celebrating this sweet day.

Today, I have a mixed media Valentine’s day themed card to share with you all… I am inspired by the photo inspiration from CUTplorations February Challenge, that I created it using the Brave One Stamp SetPocket Blooms Stamp SetStitched Tags Nesting DiesCrazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

I cut the black cardstock using the medium size of the Crazy Double Running Stitched Rectangle Nesting Dies. I added it on a white card with permanent adhesive runner.

Then, on a watercolor paper, I created the red ombre background with Sakura Koi Water Colors and flat brush. I dried it with craft heater and then cut it with one of the Stitched Tags Nesting Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Pocket Bloom Stamp Set with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad. Then, I added on the card with permanent adhesive runner.

I stamped the flowers from Brave One Stamp Set with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad on watercolor paper. Then I colored them with Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils and water brush.

I dried the flowers completely with craft heater and fussy cut them one by one with micro-tips scissors. I added them on the tag with some permanent adhesive glue and 3D foam tape for extra dimension on some of them.

I added some white paint splatters on the card using white acrylic paint and water using fan brush. That’s my card…
