Love Is In The Air - Week 4: Flowers, Flutters & More (Card 1 of 3)

A whole month to share all the love that is in the air!  

During January, I will be featuring posts celebrating hugs, kisses, and Valentine wishes.

This week's focus is on flowers, flutters and more.

Nothing Compares

White card blanks are easy to accent and give dramatic flair to water colored images  In this sample, Rose Edging (Penny Black) was stamped on watercolor paper with VersaMark Watermark ink and heat embossed with white powder.  Tombow markers were scribbled on a plastic palette and transferred to the image with a paintbrush.  

The edging was trimmed and attached to a small strip of gray cardstock which was then positioned on the top of the card blank with dimensional foam tape.

The sentiment (From the Heart - Penny Black) was stamped in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder on a die cut circle.  This element was then tucked under the floral banner.

A strip of red hearts (From the Heart) stamped across the bottom of the card in Satin Red VersaFine ground the design and pull in one of the watercolors from the banner above.

Stay tuned.  Up next....."flutters".
