For my card I used the Simon Says Stamp Heart of flowers and the Technique Tuesday say it- Love you by Ali Edward.
I started by die cutting the heart from 140lb card panel and stamping the sentiment with Versafine black onyx ink, I heat set it to be sure.
For the background I used Distress inks and the "ink smooshing technique", see the video on how.
I mounted the panel with foam tape and adhered the watercolored panel to it, adhered that with strong red sticky tape to the cardbase.
I used Candied apple, carved pumpkin, picked rapberry
and wilted violet.
I also used these colors for the LOVE you card.
the "you"is a partial sentiment , also from Technique Tuesday ( thank you).
For these three cards I adhered acetate behind the opening, so it's sturdier and easier to handle and mount the watercolor panel on. It looks like a shaker card, but isn't. on the orange one I place Ranger enamel accent on the acetate, making it look even more like a shaker card.
For the round window I sued Simon Says Stamp Circle of leave die cut.
Green Distress inks: cracked pistachio, mowed lawn, peacock feathers and lucky clover.
The orangey one is ripe persimmon, carved pumpkin and picked raspberry.
I used Simmer spritz "sparkle" to dilute the Distress inks,
instead of water.
Ranger enamel accents: electric lime,lily pad and caribbean coast for the green panel; pink gumball, wild orchid and cheese puff , for the orange panel.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp birthday balloons and I also stamped it with Versafine black onyx ink and heat set it.
