|Stenciled Candy Hearts|
Thursday, January 31, 2019
Welcome to the blog today! I'm entering a super simple two-fer today. I made a couple of Valentine cards for my Olivia and Danny- two of my grandkids, and I'm entering these into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge. To create these A2 sized cards, I began by die-cutting a generic heart die and used the negative as a stencil. I arranged them across a watercolor paper panel and erased the overlapping lines. I pulled out some watercolors and chose four different colors to paint them. Once dry, I stamped the Mama Elephant 'Lots Of Letters' alphabet stamps in Distress Oxide Picked Raspberries. I googled the words to use for the candy hearts and it was very easy peasy - a fun one to make. To finish it off I splattered all the different colors I used and mounted it to some Neenah Desert Kraft cardstock. Thanks for reading this!

Welcome here to my blog today! I'm submitting a card fort my sweetie to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! It's a stamp set called 'In The Air' by Art Impressions. I initially saw Sandy Allnock color this and I had to laugh. I stamped the image on Bristol cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and then colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers using various shades of black and gray. I splattered with some black ink, die cut some little hearts in the same red cardstock that I mounted this panel to. Also I die cut the panel from a stitched rectangle die from My Favorite Things. Thanks for reading this!

Thank you for hanging with me and reading all of this. I would love to do a video on this, but I don't yet have the courage to for that...ugh...kudos to those of you that do, though because that's the only way I can learn this stuff!
