Love Water color card #2 for The Card Concept Love challenge


Hero to share another card for The Card Concept Love challenge.
This is yet another water colored card, I created it at the same time I made my previous card for this challenge, when I have the water colors out I usually just keep going and make more then one panel at a time even if I don't have a use for it right away.

I cut thin long strips of scrap paper and temporally adhered them down on water colored paper to create the stripes as a mask and water colored on top. I used 3 shades of red or pink to make it look sort of ombre like. The love image I cut out using my Home Accents Cricut cartridge. I used Schoolhouse Red cardstock as my card base and punched out a little heart in the same color cardstock to adhere to the center of my heart.

I would put my card in the clean and layered category for this challenge. I was inspired by the ombre in the inspiration picture for my card but looking at my card and the picture for this challenge I notice the love is almost the same with the letters stacked on top of each other as well! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a lovely weekend!
