My DH and I don't really celebrate Valentines Day. Some years we have gone out for dinner and other times we have stayed home. I don't like to get caught up in the commercialism of it all. In saying that however, we do give each other a card. So here is this years effort for my DH.
Stamp Set - Boat Loads of Love. I have had this set for a while but it saw the light only last week.
Cardstock - Watercolour Paper, Whisper White, Real Red
Ink - Stazon Black
Watercolour Crayons - Yoyo Yellow, Real Red, Briliant Blue, Glorious Green, Tempting Turquoise, Going Gray and Charcoal.
I used Stampin Dimensionals to raise the small boat and the steam puffs. The heart is stamped onto Real Red Cardstock, cut out and then tucked into the small boat.
Finally I used my Colour Spritzer Tool and used Brilliant Blue and Tempting Turquoise markers to spray the colour.
All materials are Stampin' Up©

A few of my friends got together and ordered a whole lot of Bellas and Fellas recently and they finally arrived, so I got to have a little play. I made this card for my Brother-in-laws birthday. Thought it quite appropriate as he loves to bbq. The colours are probably a bit dark as you lose the detail. Next time I will choose slightly lighter colours or try colouring using my watercolour crayons for as softer effect.
The image is Grillafella from the stamping bella range. I have wanted to get my hands on these stamps for a year now and finally have some. Very exciting. Let's be honest - any stamp set or anything to do with craft and stamping is awesome.
I used Stanpin Up© cardstock and markers in So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy, Night of Navy and Bordering Blue. The fella is stamped onto watercolour card with Stazon.
I stamped the sentiment onto twill tape with Bravo Burgundy ink.
