Love is in the air.......

Afternoon fellow crafty bloggers, are you ready for Valentines Day next Sunday, we are starting to get busy at work, although it only seems like five minutes ago since it was Christmas, I have made another card which could be for Valentines or an Anniversary using my favourite stamp collection from Chocolate Baroque called Harlequin Rose. I embossed the image with cosmic gold embossing powder and then water coloured in the image with Twinkling H2Os adding lots of water to allow the colours to really blend well, I love this technique as the colours soften but still shimmer, but you do need a good quality watercolor paper to do it. I stamped the background paper with a pearlescent gold from Wow, and the sentiment was embossed in gold and coloured in using the same paints.





Thanks for taking a peek
