Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

It's the 25th of the month which means that it is time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. This month it is all about the color pink. Perfect considering that Valentine's day is right around the corner.

For starters we were given this mood board as the inspiration piece…


Here is my creation. I wanted to incorporate my love of watercolor painting for this one.


I started by heat embossing the Love in white onto a piece of watercolor paper . Next I lightly wet the entire piece of watercolor paper and added a wash of Raspberry Fizz making sure to leave some areas less saturated with color. Then on these lighter areas I generation stamped the heart from the Happy Hearts stamp set, I made sure that the paper was still a bit damp as I really wantede the hearts to have a dreamy look. After it was dry I machine stitched it onto my card front and stamped the rest of the sentiment in Smoky Shadow.



The 'x' and 'o' were die cut out of Raspberry Fizz, stitched with white floss and then I added glitter to the middle of both.


Supplies:
Stamps: Happy Hearts, The Best is Yet to Be
Dies: Valentine Stitches Die
Cardstock and Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Fresh Snow, Smoky Shadow

Thanks for hopping by today!!!
