It Must Be 'Love'

Meet today's card.

It's time for another challenge at the
CAS Watercolour Challenge.
This month our theme is 'LOVE'....easy, right?
Good chance to make a few Valentines.



For my card, I place my cardstock into my Misti, coloured the PB flowers called Trumpet Song with Memento markers, sprayed with water and stamped.  I used a paint brush to add more colour and details onto the wet paper.
I stamped the sentiment from the Forever and Always set using my Misti again with black Memento ink.
To finish my card I sponged on some Spun Sugar Distress inks just around the edges.


Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says Wednesday- THE COLOR OF LOVE

CAS on Sundays- HEART

Addicted to Stamps and More- MAKE YOUR MARK


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies- stamps- PB/ ink- Memento, Distress/ Memento markers/ MISTI/ paint brush/ applicator tool
