Now onto what I've made for today's hop...





I am giving this card to my son for Valentine's Day!  I LOVE the super cute sentiments in the My Deer stamp set, like this one!  To create this card I used a heart die as a stencil and traced it onto watercolor cardstock in a random pattern.  I then dropped various watercolors in and set it to the side to dry.  Next I stamped my little mushrooms and colored them in with various Copics.  Next I added some details with a white gel pen, and fussy cut them both out.  I also went over the edges with a black Memento marker.  For the sentiment I embossed it in white onto a circle diecut.  The scalloped circle cut was in my diecut scraps and thought it fit perfectly, as was the sparkly heart!  ( Love when you can use your scrap stash! )  Then I adhered everything to the card base setting the circle dies slightly off one edge and trimming them.  Finally, I adhered the larger mushroom, and popped the little one up with foam adhesive!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for hopping along!  I know you are going to be amazed as you hop along with all of the awesome inspiration, here is a complete list of hop participants:
