Love For My Man #5

I am on a mission to shower my man with a bunch of cards, tags, and treats in the 2 weeks leading up to Valentine's Day. And I am going to share the papercrafting part of that with you :)

I have already shared a few of the other cards I made for this mission, you can find those posts here:

Lucky Stars
Wild About You

I recently discovered a new-ish stamp company called Kindred Stamps. I love their Pop Culture stamps, and actually bought quite a few of them last month. What Sci-Fi geek can pass up all of the  space, time travel, and fantastic magical themed stamps?!! Not this one. 😎😍

I have seen lots of fabulous alcohol marker coloring with this set, but frankly, I am not that good at that kind of coloring yet. And I don't have the right colors yet. So watercolor it is! And I love to watercolor anyway. 😁
  1. I created a fun background by starting with a 4"x5¼" panel of watercolor paper, taping it down to a board, and sponging with Dapper Denim and Fresh Fig ink. 
  2. Then I spritzed with Pearlized water, dried with a heat tool. 
  3. Spattered with water and dabbed it away. 
  4. Took some white Dr. Ph. Martin's Pen White ink, dropped onto a non-porous surface, and added a little water with a paint brush to thin it out a bit. Then spattered on the background to create stars. Dried with a heat tool again.
  5. Stamped the Neat and Tangle background stamp Time Warp in Versamark ink in the center of the watercolored panel, White heat embossed. 
  6. Took a scrap of watercolor paper, sponged with Fresh Fig, spritzed, dried, and die cut a heart. 
  7. Stitched around the panel. Adhered to cardbase.
  8. Stamped the characters from Kindred Stamps Galactic Adventures in Versafine Onyx Black ink on watercolor paper, Clear heat embossed. Watercolored with various Distress Inks, then fussy cut.
  9. Cut a ½" strip of black cardstock, stamped the sentiments from Galactic Adventures in Versamark, then White heat embossed. Trim down and dovetail. 
  10. Adhere sentiments, characters, and heart to cardfront with dimensionals or foam tape. 
Here you can see the dimension on the card, with all the pieces popped up. I used a sweet sentiment on the inside from Papertrey Ink, but I can't find the set on their site right now, so I didn't tease you with it, lol.
