Lawnscapingchallenge #122:watercoloring


Lawnscapingchallenge #122:watercoloring

For my card I watercolored a piece of watercolorpaper with Distress inks (barn door, worn lipstick and picked raspberry) I watered it down with perfect pearls mist, to get a lovely shimmer, which is probably lost on the photo, but it's there ;-)
I then managed to get two hearts out of the panel and for my initial card I just mounted the heart and sentiment with foamtape, dotted sequins around the card.

The xoxo diecut is from Lawn Fawn and the enamel dots are diy homemade, attached with gluedots.

At this time I thought the sequins made it too busy, I want the focus on the heart and the watercoloring.
So I made my final card by diecutting the xoxo out of the heart and red glitter paper.
Mounted the heart with foamdots as well, but not the xoxo diecut.

then I thought should I add a hedgehog or two? and the sending hedgehugs sentiment? then I could also enter it into the SSS challenge, but I decided against it as I like it CAS.
I'll just make another card for SSS lol.

I've been waiting 2 months go get this xoxo in, and I'm so glad it arrived before Valentine's day ;-)
Although I think you  can use it all year round...
