Happy New Year!

I got caught in the December time warp and honestly, I don't know what happened to the past few weeks!  I actually feel like I have lost time and any other time of the year I would probably be concerned for my health and be getting a CAT scan or something!  But that being said we had a lovely holiday break with lots Christmas, friends, family, and enjoying each other.

With time marching on so quickly I finally got around to using December's Stamp of the Month and it is perfect for Valentine's! 

Using this week's super cute sketch from Atlantic Hearts I put together this quick Valentine's card. I started by pulling out my watercolours and quickly putting just a few colours, mostly yellow, light blue, and greens onto a piece of white daisy cardstock.  Once dried, I stamped the image several times using Charcoal ink.  I then cut them into 1x1 squares. 

The background paper is from the Whimsy Fundamentals Collection from last year and I inked the edges in Juniper ink.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and also stamped in Charcoal.

I got a new phone for Christmas and I am still working out how to take good photos of my artwork with it.  This picture shows the greens and yellows as being very bright whereas in real life they are much softer.

I resisted the urge to add "more" or "bling up" this card, I just love it being so clean and simple.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope I have been inspired you to come play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Happy Crafting!
