Some of you might know that I’m currently following Online Card Class Watercolor For Card Makers Intermediate Techniques. So today’s card was inspired by Dawn’s (from WPlus9) video shared on Day 1 of the class and Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #28 – Love Theme.
The idea was to create a repeated pattern across the whole front panel. I used NND Newton Loves Coffee stamp set and repeatedly stamped the images with a very light ink. Then I filled the cup shapes with clear water and randomly dropped some colors into wet areas. The pattern was done with Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolors on a hot pressed watercolor paper. I mixed my own colors from their Professional Series tubes using Sap Green, Aureolin, Scarlet Lake, French Ultramarine.
I decided to keep the rest of the card very simple and not overdo it. Since it’s a Valentine’s Day card I added a heart shape on top making simple embossing with white embossing powder.
Hope you like the idea and a non-traditional color combo for the Love Theme. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving kind comments! Hope to catch you up very soon!
