Today finds me with low energy but in the mood to create. I found that I could combine these challenges, CAS(E) this Sketch, Just Us Girls and CAS Watercolour, for a cheerful card that could be used for Valentine's Day or an anniversary.
To start, I did a bit of splotchy watercoloring on a piece of Watercolor Paper. The colors I used were Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach. Once dry, I attached that layer to a card base of Whisper White Thick cardstock. The large hearts were punched from Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride. The Blushing Bride heart was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The little hearts were punched from Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry using the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. The two hearts on the lower left of the card were embossed using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.
From the Sunshine Sayings stamp set, I stamped two sentiments onto Whisper White using Basic Black Archival ink. Then, I added a line of Rhinestone Basic Jewels to each label and one to the large Sweet Sugarplum heart.
Here is a close up of the what the Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist looks like. I sprayed the entire front of the card with it so it has a very pretty shimmer to it.
