While I still had time I wanted to make another card for the Love theme challenge at AAA Cards. But rather than just making a love theme card I wanted to use the challenge image as my inspiration.
Here is my card. Apologies for the rubbish pic, it was impossible to take a photo without getting the glare from my lamp. Hurry up Spring so I can have some lighter evenings!...
Here is the challenge image...
I started by adding a wash to some watercolour paper then smooshed around some pink, purple and blue paint. While that was drying I cut a piece of black cardstock to fit my card base and die cut a heart. I then adhered the watercoloured panel behind the aperture before adhering the whole panel to my card base. I then cut a smaller heart from the remaining black card and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment. This was popped up on 3D foam in the centre.
