STAMPlorations CAS Challenge #2

Hello, hello!  Today starts a new challenge for STAMPlorations Clean and Simple Challenge, woot woot!  As always our Challenges are based on clean and simple designs, anything goes with the optional twist this time of the color: RED.  Here is what I've created...



As I am taking the OCC Watercolor class right now I incorporated a bit of my homework from Day 3 negative watercoloring into this challenge.  ( I'm really learning so much, even though I'm a bit behind, thank goodness you can take the class at your own pace! )  I started by using the heart image from the Balloons and Banners Stamp set as a basis for my heart images floating across the front.  I then used watercolors to loosely drop in over the hearts in various mixed reds.  I then used the negative watercoloring technique around the outside of the images, layering various colors and adding some droplets here and there with my brush.  Once it had finally dried I stamped my sentiment from the Fond Expression 2 Stamp Set several times with my MISTI and black Versafine ink.

I am also linking this up to Simon Says Stamp: Have a Heart Challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
