Watercolor Valentine’s Day Card – Make a Card Monday #267 + 2 GIVEAWAYS!

Hello, all!

Today I played with the Paper Hug stamp set that I designed for the February 2015 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. I love the large “Will you be my Valentine?” stamp and couldn’t resist creating a card with it. :)


The watercolor background was created with Distress Inks in Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and Spun Sugar, and then droplets of water were applied to “bleach” some of the color. I’ve been loving this technique recently.
