Be Mine Valentine | Art Impressions

Be Mine Valentine

I love doing this inlay technique that I saw done originally by Jennifer McGuire and I am absolutely obsessed.  I made this clean and simple Be Mine Valentine card for Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend.  I have been doing a LOT of winter cards (cuz it’s my favorite season…yes, because of the snow LOL) so I figured I would do a flowery one for Valentines Day next week.  This one is really simple to do.

Card Details:

I started off by using a piece of Canson XL Watercolor paper cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  I used Altenew bold alphabet dies to cut out the “Be Mine” from 2 pieces of watercolor paper.  I began by creating my flowers with Brilliant Yellow, Grape, Vermillion and Pink.  I added water to the blooms.  I used Olive Green and the vine to create the foliage.  I added water to the foliage.

I used Artist Tape behind the words to remove them and keep all the pieces together.   I added some stick it adhesive to the back.  I kept the insides of the b and e and replaced them when I added the white letters that I cut earlier.  I stamped “Valentine” with Versafine black ink on a piece of Gina K Designs Innocent Pink cardstock and popped it up between the Be and Mine.

I used a piece of Gina K Designs Lemon Drop cardstock for the mat cut to 5 3/8 x 4 1/8.  I adhered the entire piece to a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base.
