Savvy Creations with Cassandra / Créations avisées avec Cassandra

Hello Magenta Friends! Cassandra here today sharing a Valentine watercolour duo.

For the first version, using a stamp positioning platform, the Rose Puppy was first stamped with Vintage Photo Distress ink, Worn Lipstick Distress ink for the rose and captioned heart, Mowed Lawn distress ink for the stem and leaf, and Black Soot Archival for the caption. Next, they were each watercoloured with their same inks. Then, after masking off the "Do small things" part of the sentiment stamp, it was stamped with Black Soot Archival ink. Once, all was dry, the Crosshatched Heart was stamped with Worn Lipstick Distress ink wiping away part of the ink for a faded effect along the inside. Then using a blending brush, a light amount of Worn Lipstick was blended all around the outside fading into the centre. Lastly, the border was edged with Worn Lipstick Distress ink and mounted on a card base. 

On the second version, the Rose Puppy was stamped and coloured with a Vintage Photo Distress Watercolor pencil and the stem and leaf was coloured with Peeled Paint Distress Watercolor Pencil. The heart background was achieved by masking off the corner heart of the 15 Heart stencil and using a mini blending brush with Saltwater Taffy Distress ink first. Then, a light blending with the same ink around the outside becoming lighter towards the centre. Lastly, splattering some water to break up the uniformity and add interest to the blended background.


Happy creating!
