Share the Love Blog Hop

Close To My Heart is offering a great campaign this month to add extra support to Operation Smile through the Share the Love stamp set.  (Did you know that $7 of every purchase of this stamp set will go to Operation Smile?  What a great way to help a child!)  If you're already hopping, then you've arrived from Brenda's blog.  You'll go to Michelle Rowley's blog next.)  I decided to have fun with my watercolors in conjunction with this fab stamp set.  I made two similar cards to share with you.  The first measures 3"x6".
The second card measures 3.5"x8.5".

Both cards started with a green watercolor wash to the card base background.
Then I splattered a darker shade of green and then black watercolor paint.


The letters were cut with the CTMH/Cricut Artbooking cartridge at 2.25".  I outlined the letters with my journaling pen.  The "o" is a stamp from the Share the Love stamp set.  Both cards have a gold puffy heart from the Charlotte Workshop Your Way.  Both cards feature our new gold ribbon (the white & gold is in the Regatta collection and the black & gold is in the Charlotte collection).

Share the love by leaving a comment and then click on to MICHELLE'S BLOG next.  Thanks for stopping by!

I love your card. I have some many ideas for making variations of it. Colors, embellishments, stamps, etc. I hope you don't mind but I will be borrowing this idea.

Please do! The background would look good in so many different colors and "hello" would be cool in different fonts.
