The latest Penny Black release features some elegant hearts and flowers in time for making Valentine cards. Visit the Penny Black blog for details of their latest challenge and chance to win stamps.
I had a scrap of watercolour paper covered with flecks of masking fluid. I dampened it then stamped the Corinthians verse as background. When the paper was a little drier I stamped the flowers inked with green and red. I used a paintbrush to add more ink to the leaves and petals. When it was dry I rubbed off the masking fluid and added the sentiment.

So pretty and I love the little notches for the ribbon!
It’s amazing what you do with a scrap of watercolour paper…..so beautiful! TFS!
Beautiful as always, Heather! Interesting how the flicked masking fluid can work so well here without looking like snow. Don’t really need any more reminders of snow at the moment… 😉
Such an elegant card Heather! I AM, I AM, I AM going to give your watercolor technique a try!!!
P.S. FYI…I just tried your link to your new blog and got ‘page not found’ ‘Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here’.
