You Are So Loved

It's our mid-winter break, so today I played with watercolor. It seems like forever since I had my water brush out.

For this card I used the Loving Thoughts stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays. Both the bold graphic flower and the sentiment are from the set. Before watercoloring the flower, I heat embossed it in white onto a card base made from watercolor paper. Then I smooshed some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on my craft mat, and used my watercolor brush to add the color inside the embossed flower. I love that color! 

The sentiment is inked in Versafine Onyz Black Ink. Then I again loaded my waterbrush with the Picked Raspberry ink and tapped some ink onto my card. Don't those little dots look fabulous? They're so fun, I always find it hard to stop adding them.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

     CAS-ual Fridays CFC136 - Must Love Watercolor
     Less is More - One Layer & the theme is Love
