WWC257 – Heidi\’s Challenge: Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist

 Hello and welcome! This week we are making feminine cards at the Watercooler Challenge and Heidi is our hostess. 
xoxo hugs and kisses from Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments.
I had a lot of fun making this valentine for my daughter.  I started with a piece of wet watercolor paper and then I applied pink, purple, red and a hint of yellow Kuretake watercolors to the panel.  I swirled, blended and then heat dried the paint and then repeated the process so I wound up with layer upon layer.  Because I added several layers, the watercolor appears much more vibrant than most watercolors I have done in the past.  After the panel was nice and dry I die cut a bunch of hearts in three sizes.  I stamped the sentiment, played with the layout and came up with this random pattern that I liked.  I adhered the hearts with foam tape so there is lots of dimension to the card.
