Sending You Love

Here's my card for this week's sketch at Retro Sketches.  I used some new stamps and dies from WPlus9--and more watercoloring!--for this one.

Sending You Love card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from WPlus9I started off by making my watercolor background panel.  The hearts were heat embossed in white on the watercolor paper, then I did a light watercolor wash over them.  Love how the hearts resist the paint!  I used foam tape to layer the die cut umbrella on top.

After matting the image on turquoise paper, I adhered it to a slightly larger aqua mat.  The "sending my love" sentiment was adhered on an angle at the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the finished image panel to an aqua card base with a multicolored patterned paper strip along the right edge.

Materials Used:
Love Showers stamp set, Love Showers dies (WPlus9); Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); Aquamarine ink (Avery Elle); Limeade Ice, Hawaiian Shores, and Raspberry Fizz cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Steel Grey cardstock, Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax die (My Favorite Things); Summer Bliss 6x6 paper pad (Echo Park); Snow embossing powder, watercolor paper, watercolors (Michaels); foam tape
