Oh, those sweeties over at a la Card Monkey asked me to be one of their guest designers again! Check out this fun sketch:
I had mentioned that I wanted to use the sweet little girl from Greeting Card Kids for a Valentine’s card, so this was a perfect opportunity. The sketch was simple, so it wouldn’t detract from the detailed image, and I’d have a chance to do some watercoloring:
I stamped my little girl in Stazon on watercolor paper and used reinkers to color her in:
I used a combination of Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride DPs for my background, and I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch to make a cute little cross-stitch embellishment (I am pretty sure my PP friend Ann showed me this!)
I used the same watercolor paper to diecut a couple hearts from the Fashionable Hearts die along with a sentiment from Tiny Tags, stamped in Real Red. This is really a simple card, but I just love how it turned out! I hope you’ll play along with the Monkey girls…..check out their blog here and see what the other designers came up with!
I think I might have to make a card with these colors and patterns!
