Watercolor Class Valentine


The Online Watercolor Class is pretty much over,
but the gallery is staying open this week.



So I thought I'd share my hubby's Valentine.

I used the wash technique from Days 1 and 2.

I die cut a heart and embossed it, cut a smaller heart from a
leftover piece of the wash, stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.

There's a little frame of scoring to give it a bit more dimension.

I hope he likes it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!
