Watercoloured hearts.


Hi everyone, it's been so long since I've posted!
 Lots of ongoing health issues in my family, so crafting had to be put on hold for a while. I'm on holidays now so can squeeze in some card making!

I hope everyone had a happy Christmas and that 2017 is a great year for everyone!

This was a quick and easy card to make, The hearts are diecut from a piece of watercolour paper, painted with Kuretake Gansai paints. The sentiment is from Annabelle Stamps, all framed with an embossing folder.

I'm joining the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday anything goes challenge.

The white inlay for the hearts is cut from a scrap of white card.  Using snippets means I can also pop over the the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. (There's not much time left so be quick if you want to play along!)

Supplies:
Memory Box Sofia Heart die; Annabelle Stamps Weddings Medallion sentiment (now closed down); versafine ink & clear ep; Kuretake Gansai watercolours; Stately embossing folder.

Thanks for visiting, and enjoy the rest of the season's festivities,
Cathy x

I love the look of these hearts. Visually they are convex, as if they had in thickness. as pillows in the shape of a heart. Great idea.
