Today, I have a fun card that I made using a stamp set that is only available in February. This exclusive stamp set called Share the Love and if you purchase this stamp set ($17.95), Close To My Heart will donate $7 to Operation Smile. If you don't already know, Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that provides free life-changing surgeries for children with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
For this card, I used Close To My Heart inks to make a watercolor effect for the background paper. I really love how this turned out! To do this, I put a drop of ink (from my re-inkers) on an acrylic blog. Then, I used a watercolor brush to dampen the watercolor where I wanted the color. Then, I added the three colors. The colors were added separately, but I allowed them to touch as they dried. This created a gradient between the colors that looks so great. It took about thirty minutes to dry.
The rest of the card is stamped and paper pieced. Easy peasy!
