Love is in the air

Love is in the Air

Love in the Air with a little watercolouring. The girl is a wood mounted stamp, “Sweet on You” from the new Penny Black catalog and the background a slapstick cling stamp, “Love Paris”. I stamped the girl in Versafine Onyx Black then coloured it with Faber-Castell watercolour pencils. I placed a girl shaped mask over her (that is pretty much the extent of my ‘fussy cutting’!) so I could put Paris in the background. The tiny heart wanted more attention so I stamped it on red cardstock and embossed in clear to give it a little shine.

    A cupcake on her head, a kitty in her lap — what an adorable image! Perfectly watercoloured, of course. And she really does call out for a Parisian backdrop, doesn’t she? Fabulous, Heather.

    I love it. What a fun way to stamp the background. I love that it’s just a whisper of color and your excellent water coloring too.

    Although the image is quite sophisticated, I much prefer your scenes from nature, Heather, and the techniques you use when making those beautiful cards. Your trees and snow scenes are truly inspirational.

  7. Dear Heather, no matter what you do, what image you pick, your work is ALWAYS exquisite and inspiring! I love this card!!

    Thank You~
