LOVE

Hi there!

I really don't know what I am going to do with all the Valentine's day cards I've made over the last couple of days, because I only have ONE Valentine ! LOL, but hey the challenges keep coming, and you know I can't resist a challenge!

Speaking of challenges... my set of watercolor paint was still lying on my desk, and after my previous attempt, I gained some confidence to try again! And this time I LOVE the result :)



It only took 2 simple brush strokes to make the heart using a die cut heart as guide! I layered the card front on the base which was  painted in the same shade of pink.

The 'love' sentiment is from Miss Kate Cuttables (cut with my Silhouette).



Inspiration comes from the following challenges:

Cas-ual fridays  ~ CAS watercolors

Casology ~ HOT (I picked a hot shade of pink for my heart)

AAA cards ~ LOVE

Addicted to stamps ~ Photo inspiration (I used the love theme and pink as inspiration)


                               


                                 


Thanks for visiting me... I'll be back a bit later with my CASE this sketch inspiration card!

Very nice Valentine card Hannelie!
I'm really not good in painting but maybe I should try more and gain confidence to!
Best,
Charlotte

Another gorgeous card Hannelie. Glad you stuck with the watercolours. I have the same problem with surplus cards - but I can't resist a challenge either!

Joe, vrou, jy's so slim jong!!! Ek sou nou nooit daaraan gedink het om op so 'n manier so 'n perfekte hart te maak nie!!! ('n netjies hart is vir my een van die moeilikste goed om te teken en ek sou 50 probeer doen het met net 'n verfkwas en almal sou in die drom beland het!!! Jy ken my beperkte vermoeens met 'n kwas, ne!!! LOL!!!!) Ek kan vir jou se dat ek net soos jy, mal is oor die resultaat wat jy hier gekry het!!! Die sentiment lyk pragtig en die swart pereltjies lyk so mooi!!!! Die pienk raampie is perfek!!! Nog een waarop jy gerus maar baie trots kan wees, vrou!!! Jou valentine gaan mal wees daaroor en jy kan al die res vir jou meisiekinders gee om onder hulle vriende te verkoop - studente is mos mal oor valentine's dag en almal gee vir mekaar kaartjies!!! Sit almal in 'n stewige boksie en pos more vir een van jou meisiekinders - dit sal soos soetkoek verkoop!!!!
Groete

Kara Lynne said...

Ha! I've been wondering what to do with all these Valentines myself! Two brush strokes was all you needed! More would've been too much - it's perfectly beautiful!

Ardyth Percy-Robb said...

Gorgeous - I love the watercolour variations and the fancy die cut, too! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!

Cheryl W. said...

I would not have thought to use the negative space of a cut out heart as a sort of half-stencil. I love the result!

There are times I wish I had a Silhouette. Like now. That sentiment is gorgeous! And such an artsy heart too.

Gorgeous CAS card! Love the sweet heart you created! Thank you for sharing at ATSM.

Marika said...

Stunning! Please, don't clean your desk, I want to see more watercoloring from you.

Gerrina said...

Dat is een hele mooie manier om watercolour te gebruiken! Ik heb hetzelfde probleem en probeer dan ook om wat algemenere kaarten te maken... Plus dat ik de kaart die ik voor mijn valentijn (en een voor de dochter) maak ook niet wil laten zien voor valentijnsdag... Dat betekend wel dat ik op een bepaald moment gewoon stop met die kaarten en challenges...het is niet anders. Groetjes, Gerrina

Sue said...
