To create my card I used CTMH Watercolour Pencils, the Woodland Romance D-size stamp set, and the MOST important thing... Archival Ink. This ink is AMAZING for watercolouring. It does not run or smudge while painting. It does take a bit to dry, but once it does - it is there. I pre-stamped my images and then let them set while I got dinner ready. When I got back, they were ready to colour.
I prefer to use the watercolour pencils, I love how I can control the tones. My preferred method is to colour on a separate sheet of paper, and then pick up the paint with my brush. You can blend colours so easily this way.
I did some gold heat embossing on the card. As well, I used CTMH's newly released Black and Gold Ribbon and a couple of Bling Gems in Gold to finish off the card. I adhered the "love" heart with 3D tape to give some dimension.
If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, http://mycreationswithmichelle.blogspot.ca, as she has the complete blog list.
