Love Note- CAS Watercolour Challenge

Hello and Welcome.

Time for more fun at the 

 With Valentine's Day right around the corner it's a great time to create a heart card.
We are so happy to also welcome Sue from Sue's Card Craft as our Guest this month.
Come and see what our talented team has created.

I began my card by creating the backdrop for my cute little Penny Black houses.
To do that, I rubbed some Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide inks onto my acrylic stamping block, sprayed with water and pressed onto my paper.
I also used some Seedless Preserves to paint the little heart on top of house in the center.
I mounted the inked background and the little houses over a circle die-cut front.
Stamped the sentiment from the cute Smitten set by Penny Black using my Misti.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
