With Love for CAS Watercolour Card Challenge

Time for another challenge at 


Here's this month's challenge.

With Valentine's Day on the horizon, I wanted to start the challenge with hearts and love.

I started by stamping this image with Whisper White ink and
 heat embossed so I could do a resist technique.

I used by Gamsai Tambi Dark Pink Watercolor and a wet on wet technique for the wash.
After it was dry, I dropped a bit of diluted blue ink that was on my palette.

When dry, I added some more color to the hearts.

This card was inspired by Heather Telford's gorgeous card here.

Our challenge at CAS Watercolour is open until the 24th.
Our Design Team and Guest Designer, Michelle
have some gorgeous cards to inspire you.
I hope you'll check them out then join in the fun!


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

The pink with that touch of blue for the very hint of purple is so pretty Bonnie and the extra pink on the hearts makes them stand out beautifully against the white embossing. x

If you keep using the same stamps I have I won't have anything to do, Bonnie. ;) I love the watercolor around the embossing. It's so soft and pretty.

I adore Gamsai Tambi Dark Pink Watercolor so when I saw that you used this as your primary color, you had me! isn't that color so amazing you can get so many values out of that color! Thank you for the inspiration! I also love watercolor cards, cheek out my blog, I have a tag just for watercolor if you want to feel inspired!
