Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating today!  

December arrived so quickly, bringing the Valentine's 2020 Collection filled with beautiful hearts and flowers.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a simple watercolored design from the new collection - and a faux-splatter technique.

Spritz the smoother side of watercolor paper with a fine mist of water.  Paint it a pale, watery pink - I used a diluted Kaleidacolor dye ink refill.  Heat-set it - from both sides to minimize curling.

Stamp the large Friendship Floral Heart with VersaFine Onyx Black.  Quickly emboss it with detail clear powder.  Watercolor the flowers, leaves and berries.  Heat-set it again.

Cover the entire heart with the Poppystamps Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape. It's a versatile tape with a soft translucent shimmer - and white specks. It resembles random splatters of white paint, water or bleach.  These amazing little white spots landed exactly where I wanted them to - unlike the wayward, wonkly splatters I usually end up with. Cut it with the largest Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out.  Cut the front panel of a gray 5-½" square card with the same die.  

Paint the smooth side of a watercolor paper scrap pink.  Heat-set the ink and stamp "be happy" from the new Big and Little Valentine's Clear Stamps with a clean VersaMark inkpad.  Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder, set it aside to cool.  Brush Slate Gray Kaleidacolor Dye Ink over it with a slightly damp wide paintbrush.  The embossed greeting will resist the dye ink and match the Friendship Floral Heart.

Assemble the card - use foam dots for the greeting.  Add ¼" punched circles of pink glittered cardstock.

This is a gorgeous design, I would never have guessed the splatters were from washi. Merry Christmas everyone!

How nice that you have posted some Valentine cards ideas early so we can get started on making them! Thanks, Jean!
