time out for a loving heart


Howdy folks. How many days 'til Valentine's Day? There's a fun challenge over at Time Out being sponsored by STAMPlorations and I've made a masculine card following the Valentine's Day theme with the optional twist of Heart.


I added a set of watercolors (you know the tube kind, like Dawn W. uses) to my last amazon order and this was my first time using them. I usually use a set I picked up at Hobby Lobby. Very different but very saturated color. Must try them on watercolor paper next.

The love sentiment is from Sentiment Builders: Love and the heart is vintage Hero Arts. As in, it says 1998 on it. Whoa! No idea where I got it but I thought it looked masculine and "right" in the puddle of watercolor!

Check out some of the great LOVE cards my teamies created here. And create a card for the Time Out challenge. You could win a STAMPlorations GC or stencil pack.

This card is also going to the Have a Heart Challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.
