It seems like lately watercolor is everywhere and I couldn't help but join in.
I really wanted to create a fun watercolor background but I couldn't leave my copics alone :)
I absolutely love the fun hearts in this set but I wanted to use them a little differently. I stamped with a super light gray ink and then watercolored over top with some pretty colors taking a wet paintbrush to dry paper. After it was dry I went in my with Copic markers and added some shading to the hearts. Speaking of shading I couldn't stop myself from adding a slight shadow to the hearts along with a white outline for the large script love.
I tried several ways to add the second part of my sentiment that didn't work. Finally, I just went with what I know and stamped it directly on the background. Sometimes it's better not to overthink it :)
I also did a video for you all!
If something isn't working for your card don't give up on it completely. Keep at it. Everything is salvageable!
