Technique Time

 Water Color
At Heart 2 Heart the new water color challenge gave
me the opportunity to bring out my water brushes.
My favorite way to water color is to use the coordinating
ink pad and the water brush to add the color.

This is a close up of the water colored flowers and leaves.
For this technique cut your desired shapes and lay them on
the Versa Mat or a water proof surface. Spray them with a
light mist of water. Use your water brush to pick up ink color
from the lid of your ink pad. Touch the wet image with the
inked brush and it will spread across the wet image. To get the
two tone color on the leaves I used Emerald with a touch of Lemon.

I used this sketch from Atlantic Hearts for my card.
CTMH Supplies:
B&T Duos: Little Dreamer
Cardstock: Glacier, White Daisy
Stamps: Happy Heart
Ink: Lagoon, Blossom. Smoothie, Whisper, Emerald, Lemon

Flowers and Leaves: Flower Market Cricut cartridge

A Heartfelt Thankyou

With a Sketch From
Atlantic Hearts and two CTMH paper packs.
 One of the fun things about this current Seasonal Expressions is you
 can mix and match the papers from different packs. On this card I

The flowers and leaves were cut with White Daisy and
sponged with Raspberry and Fern ink.
This fun sketch from Atlantic Hearts was used to make my card.
If you missed the fun with this sketch another one will be posted on Monday.
Be sure to check it out and come play at Atlantic Hearts.

A Heart 2 Heart Color Challenge

With Emerald, Blossom, and Lemon
One of my downline gave me a new fun stamp set from Heartfelt Creations.
I normally only use CTMH products but this flower stamp set
was so pretty I had to give it a try. 
With the colors at the Heart 2 Heart challenge it seemed just perfect
to play with this stamp set. I colored the flower with Blossom
and Lemon and the leaves with Emerald and Lemon to soften
the boldness of the Emerald green.

Use these colors below and come play at Heart 2 Heart.
