Be Mine

Hello Friends and Happy Valentine's day!   I hope you all have some fun plans today...whether you're spending it with one special person, your family or even just doing something special for yourself, I hope it's a sweet one!!! :)  And of course, to celebrate this special holiday, I couldn't NOT make a Valentine's day card, right?!!

So here it is...

You might have recognized that I made a similar card a few weeks ago....well actually the background was similar!  I just love making these water color backgrounds and playing with my distress inks!!!   I took some water color paper and then added lots of water and some fun Tim Holtz distress inks in shades of pinks and purples.  I then took some water droplets to splatter all over my card and picked them up with a paper towel.  The resist effect the distress inks have with this technique is pretty cool.  You can't really see it in the photo but you can really see it up close!  The adorable image on my card is by The Greeting Farm and she is from the Bean collection.  This cutie is called Sweetie Bean and one of my all time favorite images for Valentine's Day!  I had so much fun coloring her up with my Copics.  I added lots of Wink of Stella all over her outfit and her heart garland to give her lots of shimmer.  The sentiment was stamped onto my paper using Versamark Ink and then embossed with some Ranger black sparkling powder.  I finished off my card with some fun colorful sequins.

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Sweetie Bean - The Greeting Farm
Seedless Preserves - Tim Holtz distress ink
Picked Raspberry - Tim Holtz distress ink
Spun Sugar - Tim Holtz distress ink
Shaded Lilac - Tim Holtz distress ink
Black Sparkling Embossing Powder - Ranger

Hope you give these water color backgrounds a try!

Have a great  Valentine's Day weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
