Watercolor Rainfall

I'm on a watercolor kick lately.  It's so much fun to take a blank piece of paper and wash it with a rainbow of colors.  Perhaps I am being influenced by all the rain we're having here in the Pacific Northwest.  It's turning everything green and colorful again.


I combined the two February challenges at Stampin' Celebration as inspiration for my card.
SC#75 Feb.
SC#75 Sketch
One little tip I can pass on to you is to use a QuickStik tool if you are going to be attaching all these little hearts.  It makes the task so much easier.

QuickStik Tool
If you've never seen one and want me to do a video on how to use it, let me know in the comments below.  :)

I'm also linking up with the new Wednesday Workout at Simon Says Stamp.  The challenge is to use new products so I used my new SSS die, new paper pack and brand new Seattle stamp.  <3   No wonder I love this card, it's fun playing with new toys.  :)

I LOVE your card Heather! So seriously cute! Love. everything. about. it. And I'm from the PNW too... just a little north of you though, but I know what you're talking about with the rain... and the rain is a BIG part of why I LOVE rainbows!

I've never seen one, and I'd like you to do a video of it. =) It reminds me a little of the way crystals are put on fabric, though. The card is adorable, and perfect for a "from Seattle" sentiment!

Thank you so much everyone! Wait until I tell my mom that card I sent her won at Stampin' Connection. She won't understand because she isn't a blogger, but she'll be proud of me. :)
