You Have My Heart

Here's another card very similar to my design for the Simon Wednesday challenge, but I thought I'd share it anyway.  It's almost a one-layer design.....


supplies: watercolor paper, ivory card base, Simon's Roses for You clear stamp set, Spectrum Aqua Floral and Zig Clean Color markers in shades of pink and green

I simply stamped the individual flowers and leaf sprigs along a lightly-pencilled heart shape, then erased the pencil lines and watercolored the design.  After stamping my sentiment from the same set, I splattered some of the inks (a little too exuberantly, maybe?), and let the panel dry before attaching it to my card base.

I am loving this stamp set - it may be the source of most of my Valentines for this year!

I love the roses in the heart wreath shape. Very pretty! It is hard to do one layer cards with watercolor paper, I usually do a layer like you did here.
