Ahhhhhh I have to keep reminding myself it's Friday and not Saturday! My older kids don't have school today so the slight change in schedule has thrown me off. While said kids were at school yesterday I had the rare opportunity to spend some extra time crafting as I got both littles napping at the same time - so I made 2 cards instead of one because I couldn't make up my mind on which color scheme to go for - so I did both:
I used MFT's Roses All Over background stamp (linked in the supplies below) and heat embossed it onto Tim Holtz Distress watercolour card stock with white embossing powder.
This is one of my FAVOURITE ways to watercolor - the emboss resist gives such a cool look - and anyone can drop colors onto paper - no fancy painting techniques or skills needed - if I can do it anyone can LOL!
The first card I made I did in more "traditional" Valentine colors - and my favourite Distress combo (Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar).
For my second card I went with a rainbow color scheme - I always LOVE how it looks like so many colors were used when in reality I only used 3 (Festive Berries, Squeezed Lemonade, Salty Ocean). A card like this is what I would deem more "masculine" than the other one - with this series I've been trying to make more cards to fit that theme as it's something I get asked for often!
As I rave in the video - the Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Mix Sequins are big favourites of mine. When I was finally able to get my hands on them I got 2 packs and I keep them on my desk in a little bowl - I don't even bother putting them away LOL. They're sold out everywhere as of this moment (they sell out fast so when you find them in stock get them!) but I do know that Paulina is working on restocking her store and the retailers as I'm typing this so keep your eyes peeled ;) ;).
I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiments on the inside of the card. I've had a lot of people asking me if I'll be ordering the new Mini MISTI that was revealed at CHA (it's on pre-order right now and ships out in March). I haven't made up my mind yet on that one. I want it of course - I just don't like having to wait over a month! I'm sure I'll cave once it's actually available to order...
Anywho - to see how these cards came together check out my video below:
