Hi there, It's Ceal today to share with you.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, seems like Christmas came so fast this year. Our next big card making holiday is Valentines Day. I love making Valentine cards almost as much as Christmas cards. This one uses the Heart of Gold stamp set from Neat & Tangled along with the Heart of Gold Nice and Neat die.
To make my card I used some cold press watercolor paper and watercolor paint. I made a watercolor wash with the paint and then splattered some water across it and then blotted it with a paper towel to achieve the water splatters.
I used gold foil for the Heart of Gold die and left a few of the pieces in the heart on purpose. Lastly I stamped the sentiment near the bottom with archival ink since I was using water, because it doesn't bleed.
It was hard to get the heart to look gold in the photograph so here's a close up
