Happy Valentine's Day! I had a great time using the February stamp of the month, Heartfelt Sentiments, to create Valentine cards for my three loves.
My first card got mailed Monday to our daughter in college. I stamped the large sentiment stamp on a 4"x5.25" White Daisy panel with black ink. I also stamped the banner portion of the stamp onto a piece of Candy Apple card stock and then cut out the banner.
Can you see how I colored the sentiment with Red and Black shimmer brushes? This panel was glued to a piece of Candy Apple card stock and then mounted onto the front of my card. White enamel gems completed it.
My second card, for my husband, is similar to the first but similar. I used the red shimmer brush on this one and added a puffy heart from the So Much Happy collection.
My third and final card is for our younger daughter. I love this piece of Sapphire with Lagoon hearts from the So Much Happy collection and knew it would be perfect for her card. I stamped the sentiment panel in Sapphire and then the banner with Lagoon ink. I colored the sentiment with Marine Blue and Peacock Blue Shin-Han Twin Touch markers, and the flowers with Turquoise and Vivid Green. I also used my mint shimmer brush on the sentiment and some of the flowers. (It is really hard to photograph the shimmer brushes!)
Do you like the aqua gems? They are clear sparkles colored with the Turquoise Shin-Han Twin Touch marker!
