Watercolor stitched hearts

This card was made for a special lady who just turned 90 years old.  What an accomplishment!  We should all be so lucky to usher in a 90th birthday, and still be in good health and active as my friend is.  In coming up with an idea for her celebration, I decided to use my new stamp set, just released by 

This set is called Flutter and I love it.  There are so many options using the hearts and butterflies, as pictured below. Valentine's Day is an obvious occasion to use this set but how about a card for your favorite crafter that sews?  Or the butterfly lover in your life?  Birthdays, Just Because, Thinking of You, Mother's the saying goes, the only limit is your imagination!  
I water colored inside the heart images using my Colorbox Pinkolicious archival ink by blotting my ink pad on an acrylic block, and using a paintbrush to dab water.  A very easy and effective technique that you should try, if you haven't already.  I've been searching for some time for that perfect shade of pink and I finally found it!  Love the Pinkolicious shade.

You can purchase the set I used here: Flutter Stamp Set or any of their other stamps, dies, and other products.  I own several and, yes, they are fabulous products!
