WISHING YOU ~ VALENTINES DAY CARD

Hello and welcome! The following card is a result of finally having a day to "play". These adorable little bunnies are from the WPlus9 "Wishing You' set. I stamped them on watercolor paper, colored them with the Zig "Clean Color Real Brush" Markers, then masked them and got out a Tim Holtz stencil ("Rays") and some distress inks to make a romantic background.


Once the background was complete, I drew in a horizon with a Copic Multiliner and colored in the grassy meadow with  the Zig Markers. I die cut the scene with a die from My Favorite Things ("Stitched Rectangles Stax") set. You can see the stitching detail below.


Finally, I mounted it on Recollections cardstock and added some stickers from my stash to finish it off.

CARD RECIPE:
Paper: Strathmore Bristol Watercolor Paper & Recollections Card Stock
Ink: Versa Fine "Black Onyx" 
Image: WPlus9 "Wishing You"
Coloring: Zig "Clean Color Real Brush" Pens
Background: Tim Holtz Stencil "Rays" with Tim Holtz Distress Inks: "Mustard Seed", "Carved Pumpkin", "Candied Apple", "Dusty Concord", and "Chipped Sapphire" for the sunset;  "Squeezed Lemonade" between the rays.
Dies: My Favorite Things "Stitched Rectangles Stax"
Embellishments: Red Glitter Stickers from Walmart, Candy Heart stick from stash

I am entering this in:
