Love Your Face Watercolor Card - Blogging Friends Blog Hop February 2016

Welcome back to another Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

I always love her projects!

This month, our theme is Love and Valentine's Day! 
I just knew I wanted to break out my Countless Sayings Stamp Set!

This Love stamp was just screaming to be watercolored!  I stamped it on watercolor paper in versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I taped it down to a piece of chipboard with washi tape to try to prevent the paper from warping.

I used my aqua painter brush pen and three ink pads, Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum.  I did one with a loose wash of colors and the other I really saturated, added water droplets and even did some "smooshing" with ink on a window sheet directly onto the watercolor paper.

Once the watercolor dried, I added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to the word Love.  It doesn't come across fully in the photos, but it is so lovely in person!

I stamped "your face" in Basic Black ink and I added a few sequins with the fine tip glue pen.  I layered the watercolor paper onto Wisteria Wonder and layered that onto a Rich Razzleberry card base using Snail adhesive.

I love how they both turned out, but I think the lighter one is my favorite - and it was the quicker & easier one to make!

If you are interested in any of the products I used to create these cards I will have all of my supplies listed at the very end of this post with links to my online store.
