Seeing as now February is now here, it is definitely time for some Valentines projects! Regular readers of my blog will know that I got married last year, and so this year is my first Valentines day as a married woman, saying that I’m sure its not going to be any different from any other year where we do absolutely nothing or are both working 12 hour shifts!
Still, I do need a card right?! well, I think this is the third Valentines card I have posted on the blog this year, so I might save this one for our dating anniversary in April (yes, we celebrate two anniversaries!)
I made this card in about 10 minutes, messing around with ink at the end of my most recent group stamping event. I host a stamping event for my group of Stampin’ Friends each month where we get together, stamp and natter about all things Stampin’ Up! This month we made a heap of cards using our Sale-a-bration goodies (some of which I’ll share later in the week) but I was waffling about watercolouring, and how you really don’t need to buy Watercolour paper (although ours is an awesome addition to your card making), I really enjoying watercolouring on ‘flat’ card stock like our Shimmery White card stock, or this which is our Whisper White Thick card stock (the Thick is important, as the standard weight is a bit thin and tends to warp a little too much for my liking)
Anyway, I watercoloured this patch of Tempting Turquiose just to demonstrate that Whisper White Thick card stock is a great medium for water colour, and then this card happened!
The stamp set is Going Global, wonderful for a Valentines card for the man in your life (no flowers!) stamped in Basic Black Archival ink (watercolour safe!). I watercolored the banner in Real Red, and added a spatter of Wink of Stella in Gold before calling my master piece complete!
What are you making for your love this Valentines?
