Kitchen Sink Valentine

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  I'm hoping this week starts out better than last week with me pulling my hamstring!  I wasn't able to sit at my desk much last week but it's finally feeling better and I was able to lightly kickbox on Friday!  So, here's hoping I can stamp and workout this week!

Before I injured myself, I had made this card and totally forgot about it!  It's pretty busy but I kind of love it!  Valentine's Day will be here before you know it (even IF January does seem to drag on FOR-EV-ER...does it not? I feel like it's been January for 97 days already and no end in sight but anyway...)!

So, this isn't a typical background for me, the lazy stamper!  Why?  Because it's took ages to dry lol!  I started with a watercolor wash in calypso coral and then let it mostly dry.  When it was just a little bit damp (because I'm impatient) I flicked on some melon mambo ink from my marker.  I might have flicked pool party on it too, but since it took so long I can't really remember, LOL!!!!!  Once it was totally dry, I stamped the hearts in powder pink and used an aquapianter with bermuda bay to drop some big splatters on.  For that, I just dipped it into my ink and then squeezed a lot of water out and let the drops fall while moving it all around.  Then I sat it to dry.

Once it was dry I just loaded it up with everything I could put my hands on ;-)  The Heart Happiness stamp set is really cute and I love this simple polka dot heart.  I embossed it in white on melon mambo which is a color I haven't used much so I'm trying to change that!

Hope you like my kitchen sink card because it's has about everything on it but the kitchen sink!

Happy stamping! Product List
