Hand painted Valentines Card...

I have a couple more last Valentine's projects for you.  This first one is a hand painted Valentines card that I made for a card swap at our Kansas City Stampin'Up! event.  The focal point was a piece of Watercolor Paper, corners rounded, and painted with different shades of red/pink ink refill.  After drying, I punched the heart and popped it up further on the card.  This is one of my favorite all time cards.  So simple, but so cool looking.

The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree stamp set - love those fonts!

Here's a close up of the painting.  I started with lightest on the bottom and worked my way up with darker shades.  I started with Pink Pirouette and ended with Cherry Cobbler.  I also tilted the paper so the colors would run down a bit.  If you want to try this, make sure to add enough water to your inks.  

Although it's not really a Valentines card, this one uses the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack, the Circles Collection Framelits and the fun Hey, Chick stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog (Free with a $50 purchase).
