Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Happy Valentine's Day to you!

I'm just popping in to share  one last Valentine's Day card with you.  I can't believe it will soon be time to start working on Easter cards!

I'm still trying to figure out the whole watercoloring thing! I used my Zig Clean Color Brushes for this card and I do find it easier than pan watercolors.  After years of making cards with images cut first my Circuit and then the Cameo, I have a tough time with designs that are more "loose".  I'm used to those precise, detailed cuts and it's hard for me to just go with the flow. 

While I may never be a wonderful watercolor artist, I do enjoy the technique and plan on working on my skills...I have too much money invested in paints to give it up at this point!

For this card, I used the Simon Says Stamp sets, "Roses For You" and "Hello, Beautiful".
Thanks so much for stopping in for a visit.
Enjoy your Valentine's Day and I'll see you soon...


  1. Too cute. Love the background and stitching. The flowers, hearts and arrow pop right off the card.
    Have a creative day.

  2. Love your card! I do agree with your assessment of cuts vs watercolor - still working on my own techniquest too.

  3. It's so very pretty Tanya! And I'm with you - I find it hard to watercolor or color for that matter - I like the cuts I get with my machine - still working on it though - in time! :) Have a great day!
