Mid Month Inspiraton CWS #11 and Cards und More #178 Valentine`s Day, A Love card in red and brown

Today is Valentine`s day also we from CWS challenge want to share our Mid Month Inspiration not at 15 like normally month but at 14 of February :)

 Here is my card:

As I told you I never bought any Valentine Stamps but this week I think I like to bought one of this lovely set from Penny Black. I love the balloon Heart on the set and the LOVE sentiment that under that Balloon.

 I colored with Peerless Transparent Watercolor and also gave shading with grey Copic Marker under the heart Images cause I made boo boo area on the heart number 2...sadly..I dont want to threw away my paper also how to do? I took my Stencil and added pink Distress Ink and also added shading, with grey color on each heart.

My second card I made for DT card for the challenge Cards und More, the theme this time is Valentine`s Card

 I used again the same lovely Image from Pattie Gomez (like THIS card), you can find it on her Etsy Shop named: Hearts With Bow

I colored with red and pink PeerlessTransparent Watercolor, and I added also some white gel ink on it for accent. It is not my style to used Design Paper but I try this time...its too loud I guess :) but the best part is as I made the word LOVE, I just bought from MFT the Alphabet DIES and cut it 3 times each. The first layer I covered 4 times with clear ink and clear embossing powder. The paper was red and I love the shiny from embossing powder on my LOVE sentiment.

  19. You've certainly been busy and both of these Valentines cards are gorgeous. Just love your card for our challenge, the water colouring is done perfectly and think it was a fab idea to do the grey shading, even if it was to cover a boo boo.
