Stampin' Up! Valentine Card No. 3

Since discovering how to use my Stampin' Up! Aqua Painters yesterday I have gone watercolour mad!!  I am really having such fun playing with these and the re-inkers for the Classic ink pads & today's post is Valentine Card No. 3.  In fact it doesn't have to be a Valentine card as it could just be that you want to let your husband/partner know how much you love them at any time of year.

I started off by die cutting out two of the 'Happy' sentiments from the Hello You Thinlits set.  I glued them together using Tombow Multi Purpose Glue to give it a bit of dimension and then used my Aqua Painters to paint them going from dark to light using Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette.  In hindsight I should have glued them after I had painted the sentiment as the water made the glue come unstuck so I had to re-stick them together after it had dried.  A 'DOH' moment!

I then stamped 3 hearts from the Hello Life stamp set which is fast becoming one of my favourite and then punched them out using the Postage Stamp punch.
The 'You Make Me' sentiment is from the Crazy About You stamp set.
