I Freakin Love You!

Well what an awful day it has been down here, luckily though I finished my house work in record time today and I was off into my craft room for some much needed craft therapy, the real red ink splodges on my hands are proving hard to get rid of!

Well as it's the day of love coming soon and at work we have had love week with our preshoolers I thought I should follow that theme this week on the blog.

I ran a watercolour card class yesterday evening and we experimented with creating backgrounds.  I created this one using the colours Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo and Real Red on a large block then spritzed it with water and then placed it directly onto the cardstock. It creates a great effect and you can play with lots of different colours.

I've used the Language of Love stamp set again, I love the little hearts they are so cute and with a matching punch they are so easy to cut out .
The card design was inspired by this weeks challenge on Freshly Made Sketches which you can find HERE, I find sketches a great place to start when your having a bit of a crafting block.
The sentiment for this one is from Yippee Skippee.  "I Freakin Love You" is not a phrase I would usually use but it's fun and everyone who looks at this set has a laugh at it. x
