I like to stamp a small image from a stamp set repeatedly to create my own custom patterned paper. I stamped two small bird images from THIS stamp set on to pieces of THIS cardstock and heat embossed them using THIS clear embossing powder.
Coloring is not my strong suit. So I did stripes of watercolor using several shades of Distress Ink. I made sure to dry each one before moving on to the next to minimize the blending of the colors.
I punched out a heart from THIS vellum and heat embossed a coordinating sentiment in white on to THIS die-cut. I finished off the card by adding THIS on top of the heart for some sparkle and adhered one of THESE to the sentiment strip.
A closer look...
How about a bonus card!? I can't seem to resist sneaking in a rainbow. ;) I wanted to do the same design, but mix up the colors and paint the stripes horizontally...
