Watercolour heart

A heart… well, two actually. It’s after Valentine’s but my wedding anniversary is coming up so this is for my OH of 35 years… I CAN’T be that old!!!  This is all watercoloured and cut with a Fiskars cutter (I don’t have a die cutter other than the Craft Robo which is too old to attach to my computer these days…)  The sentiment is created from some free stamps from a magazine by S C Design, done in Blue Iris chalk ink. The front heart has some Versamarked feathers stamped on it for a bit of texture.

This is entered in CAS Watercolour: HEART

Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge: Hearts


and Cards in Envy: Give it Some Heart

Doh! Forgot to add that the colours are those from  CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge #260 – Colours  (or as near as I could get by mixing watercolours.)


Thirty-five sweet years
Spring and summer leading to
Autumn together…

    I love how you’ve added the watercolor to your hearts, Helen! Turning the pattern so the stripes are different on each makes them so pleasing to the eye! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!
