Hi everyone! I love this month’s theme so much and I had loads of fun with it! The inspiration picture was my starting point and I went with the light pinks and gray in the picture to start off. I grabbed a piece of watercolor cardstock and brushed over it with pink letting the paint flow a bit. I added a bit of salt in a couple of places for a different effect. I then grabbed the Jotted Heart Die and You and I stamp set. I used the You and I stamps for the sentiment on the heart and then just started adding embellishments. After grabbing the flower I decided to stamp one of the leaves from Dream Big behind it directly on the background. I’m not sure it’s my signature style but I do love it!
