Owl always be here for you...

When I saw there was a new challenge posted at Clearly Besotted it was a no brainer that I had to play along... and I also wanted to challenge myself by experimenting with some water colors (ink drops watered down) and stamps, so viola....


I really like the results... I started by placing drops of ink on a clear stamp block.  I spritzed them with lots of water.  I also spritzed my watercolor paper first and then took the inks to the paper via paintbrush.  Next I stamped the heart image into each different "watercolor" and stamped them directly onto the paper.  I wasn't sure how this would turn out, but it worked out well!  *Tip - I stamped the image off once or twice each time before stamping onto my paper.  For the smaller label die I simply dripped ink, spritzed them and layed the label die right onto it, then let it dry.

I have also based this card on the CAS(E) Sketch Challenge #60, CAS on Sunday: Lovey Dovey, and the Hiding in My Craft Room Clean and Simple Challenge.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and leave some love, it always makes my day!
Happy Crafting!
Lisa
