I’ve got a Valentine’s Card to share with you today; I wanted to paint this beautiful new-to-me stamp from Altenew.
I used my Arteza Real Brush Markers on Bristol Smooth cardstock, because they move absolutely beautifully on there. I like to add a line of colour where the darkest shadows would naturally be, then using clean water and a No. 2 Zen watercolour brush I draw the colour out across the whole petal/leaf.
This stamp set has a circle in the middle that is perfect for your sentiment, but I wanted to pop that up so I embossed that portion of the stamp and fussy cut it out.
I added a very simple black watercolour sentiment and added some black splashes with some watered down Gouache paint.
I was inspired by my Wedding cake, which was white, with black trim and red roses cascading down. Simple, yet elegant.
The challenge inspiration for this challenge is ‘affectionate’ and I wanted to create a card with my wonderful husband in mind; this year will be our 9th Anniversary but it feels like it was only yesterday.
Thank you for stopping by today, if you’re new here I’d love it if you could follow my blog and maybe even check out some of my other social media links.
