It is finally time for Love cards! 🙂 They are my favorite type of cards but I am always too busy in this time of the year to make plenty of them. This one is for the Simon Says stamp Wednesday and Flickr challenges. The theme for the SSS Wednesday Challenge is “The Color Of Love” and theme for the Flickr Challenge is “Love Is In The Air”. If you also want to participate in the Wednesday Challenge click on the image bellow.
Here is my card:
I started by stamping different sizes of circle sentiment all over the watercolor piece. Stamps are from the SSS “Circle Sayings” stamp set. For stamping, I used clear sticky ink and white embossing powder. Next, I took different shades of pink and red distress ink and I smooshed them on a craft sheet. I picked the color with a watercolor brush, lightly colored the circle and let it dry. I repeated the process for every color that I smooshed on the craft sheet. I went three times with the same color over the same circle to get the ombre effect.
Next, I took a red piece of felt and I cut out few hearts with my scissors. I adhered them in the middle of five circles. I wanted to add something black so I decided to add one more, black, “love you” sentiment. So, I adhered painters tape on the back of a black sheet of felt and die cut “love you” words using SSS dies. I put some glue on the back of them and adhered them above and bellow the middle circle.
On the back of the watercolor piece, I adhered a piece of fun foam and I glued everything onto a craft cardstock. And that finished the card. I hope you will like it.
Have a nice weekend! 😀
