Valentine's Day Watercolor!

So I hope y'all had a great Valentine's weekend! I spent a lot of it with my husband when he wasn't working. The other part was spent crafting for various design teams but I was lucky enough to get a card in for the Little Tangles Challenge. I ordered a few stamps from Neat and Tangled last week [which arrived like 2 days later] and wanted to create a card using them. The challenge was to create a watercolor piece which is right up my alley. I love anything watercolored. :)

I first started off with my watercolor paper base. I added some different watercolors and also used some Heidi Swapp gold spray. I then stamped my image from Neat and Tangled using Be My Valentine in purple ink. I die cut a few hearts from Simon Says Stamp. A couple of the hearts, I dipped in gold leaf. It took a little while to dry but I wasn't in any rush. I then adhered everything to the card and added some sequins to finish it off! :)

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! Thanks so much for stopping by today!! :) Hopefully I can get a chance to participate in more challenges soon!

Pinkfresh Studio February Blog Hop and Giveaway!!

Hi!! Welcome to the Pinkfresh Studios Blog Hop!! You should have arrived here from Jingle. If you got off track, you can start over from the beginning HERE!

Today we're showing off the February Embellishment Kit! These kits are packed full with adorable little goodies that all work so well together. You definitely won't be disappointed. I created a card to give you just an example of how awesome this kit truly is. Mostly all Pinkfresh supplies were used on this card, give or take a few items!

The kit has a lot of little gold embellishments inside so of course, like always my go to color to use with gold is coral. I watercolored the background in a fun splotchy way, no rhyme or reason. I added some spatter marks and if you can't tell, I also watercolored the little heart stamp also included in the kit and stamped it a few times for some added love! :) I then added it to a baselayer that complimented the watercoloring with foam adhesive.

I then stamped the sentiment [included as well in the kit] with some Hero Arts Shadow Ink, I'm pretty sure it was Fresh Peach and fussy cut around the edge. I adhered it with foam adhesive and then attached these awesome little gold embellishments. There's a lot of different shapes and sizes to choose from.  I felt it added a lot to the card! To finish it off, I added some of my own personal sequins. :)

Ahh!! Look at that gold. So awesome!!!!
