I wanted to use hearts, so I took two stamp sets, Bugs & Kisses and Science of Love. I took those solid & outlined hearts from these sets.
I've stamped them randomly and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I think I used Ranger Gold Embossing powder. I had painters tape to the sides because I wanted to have a clean white border around it.
To add some shimmer to my watercolours, I used my Winsor & Newton Iridescent Medium and dabbed it to my stamping block. I'll then add more watercolours to it and mixed them.
This gives a nice shimmering finish. This is my alternative to the Wink of Stella. I find that this is more cost effective because I paid more or less the same about if I were to buy one Wink of Stella. I highly recommend for you to get this.
I started to just add my watercolours to the card base. You can go as light or as dark as you want. I just wanted a mixed of both orange and pink. I dried the piece when I wanted to add more colours and make it look darker.
I added my sentiment and some strings to the back of my die cut piece with some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to match and that's it! You can do this with any images you heart desires :)
Thanks for stopping by! I would love to see your take on this.
