Simple Watercolor Valentines Card for Friends



Happy Superbowl Sunday! I'm taking a break from preppin the snacks to get this card posted. I made a few of these using some Simon Says Stamp sets and a simple watercolor background.

Onto dry watercolor papers, I made some free hand swipes using 3 different shades of peerless watercolors. I was careful not to use too much water so that the color would stay semi-controlled. You can't tell from the photo, but I then went over each stripe with a wash of perfect pearl powder and water. After everything was completely dry, I stamped 3 repeating hearts from the Simon Says Stamp Roses for You set and finished with a sentiment from their Handwritten Love set, which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 

So how are you spending your Superbowl Sunday? Are you a Pats fan or rooting for the Eagles?
