Jennifer Snyder here sharing some Valentine's cards for February, the month of sweetness. I have two cards adorned in pink - both gussied up with Petaloo's gorgeous pink flowers. I think the happy cheery pink is a perfect balance to the dull chill of winter.
This is a sweet dainty card showing the flirty side of Petaloo. Along with the pretty Petaloo crocheted trims in white and fuchsia, I used the following Petaloo flowers to embellish this card:
and the new Petaloo Ranunculus flowers in pink ( aren't they fabulous!)
Creating this card was easier than you think. Here are a few simple steps I took to make this card:
I stamped an image onto watercolor paper so that I could paint the dress.
I used watercolor paper because it is heavy and will absorb the water from the paints. Regular cardstock or patterned paper is not as durable when water is applied and tends to get mushy and disintegrate.
I selected an ink that would not bleed or run when water is applied.
After my image was stamped, I simply blotted watercolors onto the paper. Easy! No real skill needed.
