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
