Somebunny Loves You!

Mornin hens!  Isn't this card GREAT?  OMG, I'm in LOVE with it!   I made this card for Lil' Chick and Doug for Valentine's Day.  All together now, awwwww….  {snort!} 
Ok, so here's the BEST part, I watercolored it!  OMG! OMG!  I'm so proud of myself!  Smiley  I just LOVE this look!  I think I'm hooked!  Seriously, this was my first attempt and I just can't get over it.  Ummmm, can ya tell I'm a little bit excited?  Uh YEAH!  Now I have to admit, Kristina Werner made it look so simple, I had to give it a try, and boy am I glad I did!  Thanks for the inspiration Kristina!  Ok, so I started with stamping the image onto Strathmore watercolor paper, and then using my new Tim Holtz Distress Markers, I watercolored the image. Woot-woot! Then I cut the image out using my rectangle Nestabilites and leaving the die in place, I sponged some chalk ink around the edges.  Here's a video I made awhile ago on this technique.  I matted the image with PTI Pure Poppy card stock, cut using my scalloped rectangle Nestie die.  I matted all the other DP panels using my nifty Perfect Layers tool and then stitched around the edges of each panel.  I stamped the sentiment onto a scratch piece of card stock with some Versamark ink and then sprinkled some white embossing powder over it.  Then I heat set the powder and cut the piece into a banner shape and adhered it to the bottom of the card with a few dimensionals.  To finish, I added some Glossy Accents and some glitter (using my Wink of Stella glitter pen) to the hearts.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today!  I hope you hens have a TERRIFIC Tuesday and I'll see ya back in the hen house real soon!
