You Are Amazing!



Hello My Lovely Friends

I hope you are all having a good week so far!!  I have been really busy over the last week so I have not had much time to craft. So today I made some time :) I am really meant to be cleaning my house but crafting comes first right ha!

I am still on my watercolour roll. I love love using the Peerless Watercolors that I got for my birthday! Thanks to my hubby for the best present ever :)  This card I made today was a complete accident. Yes that is right an accident! Don't you love it when stuff like that happens? My original plan was to put glitter inside the heart and keep the outside clean. But I got some splashes outside the heart aghhh! So I just went with it and added some more to even it out! I dried it with my heat gun and I LOVED the way it came out. I used the outline distress heart and sentiment from the Unity  Trust Your Soul SMAK kit. I applied my paints right on to the stamp using two different colours. I went with a Valentine theme but  with very wintery cool colours since it is still freezing cold here in upstate NY! I stamped it on to my paper then painted in the heart. Once it was dry I applied sentiment right over the top with Versafine ink. Then added some splashes with my paint brush. How easy is that?

 When I was out at the weekend and picked up some Teresa Collins crafting goodies that were on sale. I love this line she has out right now with turquoise, gold and silver in it. I think it is called the studio gold line. I will post a picture of it later.  I just has to buy these lovely sequins. The packaging itself is just lovely too. They come in wee test tubes  that are super cute!!!  I threaded some through some silver fancy floss and tied them around the bottom of my card. I absolutely love it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
