My Feelings for You are so Strong

Hello, again!  I just love this cute image by Neat & Tangled, and that sentiment – perfect!  This was my first attempt at watercoloring a background.  It’s not perfect, but it’s definitely colorful!

To make the background, I created a mask with  Winnie & Walter’s Flawless Heart Cutaways and painted the outlines of the heart, beginning with the orange one, with the distress inks pictured above.  After I had painted the outlines, I removed the mask and painted the red heart.  I set that aside to dry and colored that cutie pie from Neat & Tangled’s Big Bold Brew with Copics, adding some polka dots to the cup with a white gel pen.

Once my panel was dry, I trimmed it down and adhered it to my white card.  I popped up the stamped image with foam tape.  The sentiment was heat-embossed in black, and some clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh add a little sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the ‘net.  I hope you have a fabulous day!

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:  Little Tangles Challenge #78:  Rainbow, Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and 7 Kids Challenge #6:  Anything Goes.

    Your rainbow heart looks absolutely amazing in the Gallery and even better when I see it on your blog post!! You did such a perfect job of painting the heart and the little boy is coloured beautifully. Especially love his white dotted cup. I’m so very glad you shared this with us at Little Tangles!!
