One last Valentine !

Hi there!

Yes. It's the last one. Couldn't resist to make one last and real masculine Valentine's day card!






Inspiration for my card comes from 3 challenges:

Muse card club  ~ Card by Michele Ferguson (inspired by the pattern and colors on her card)

Casology  ~ LOVE

Cas-ualfridays  ~ Watercolor

I made my background by applying watercolor paint - (undiluted : the ones that come from a tube ) to my embossing folder, using a paintbrush.

I then spritzed the folder with water, placed the paper inside the folder, and closed it gently applying even pressure all over.

This is how it looked right after I opened it !






                   


Thanks for visiting me today!

What a cool technique! I've tried that with distress inks and didn't quite worked for me. I'll try this again with a thicker paints.. Love your take on the Muse card, you'll get my vote for sure!

So slim gedoen, vrou en ek's mal oor die resultaat wat jy gekry het!!! Dit lyk pragtig en die kleure is so lieflik op die kraft basis!!!! Ek hou van die stukkie koord wat jy so oulik gebruik het en die sentiment is perfek!!!! Regtig 'n baie mooi valentine's kaartjie vir 'n spesiale man!!!
Groete
