Watercolor Valentines

Taylored Expressions Heart of Hearts stamp set With Brusho's

Hearts are so fun to design with! I love the diffrent possibilities and the ways you can use Heart stamps to resist watercolor!  Here are some of my cards I have made using Taylored Expression stamps. I really enjoy the Brushstroke heart stamp, It's going to become one of my favorite stamps!

These next two cards, I used the Taylored Expression brushstrok heart stamp, one I used watercolor to add some color to the hearts. added a senitiment from my stash, it came to gether nice and simple!
 This card I used white heat embosing powder to make the stamped background resist to watercolor. I used Brusho's to add color, and then sprayed the brusho's with water. I love using brusho's becuase you can't really controll the outcome, I just love howbeautiful the background is!

So two difrent back grounds with two diffrent results!

My short design tip is this: when I go to make some cards, I use my time as wisley as I can. I will often have pre cut watercolor panels that I cut up before hand, so When I am ready to stamp I am not taking time to cut my panel down to size. I can start stamping right away. often times I don't have a whole afternoon, I work in steps, at about 1 hour here and there throughout the week. I will stamp and heat embose 6 panels at a time, so I can have 6 diffrent panels to chose from, and to use for cards in the future. The link for the sentiment can be found here
