Heart 2 Heart Meets Color My Heart

For National Friendship Day
Sunday, August 6 is National Friendship Day. For all my
friends who visit my blog this card is for you! I appreciate
your visits and all your kind comments.
Heart 2 Heart is celebrating National Friendship day with a fun 
friendship challenge. Hope you can share with us. For my colors I used 
the colors from Color My Heart: Sapphire, Lemon, Emerald and Poppy. 
The brick background is made with a stencil cut from Artbooking and 
sponged with Poppy ink. The bird is stamped with Charcoal ink and second 
generation Sapphire using the Thoughtful Bird stamp set with the three 
layer stamping technique. Leaves are cut with White Daisy and sponged 
with Emerald ink. Lemon flowers give the card it's final accent . 
And as the card says "So thankful for your friendship."

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.
