Heartfelt Creations DT Alumni hop

Just for fun, some of the Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni have decided to get together monthly for a blog hop! We'll be getting together the 4th Tuesday of each month, just sharing a project featuring Heartfelt Creations' stamps. This is our first ever blog hop - so let us know what you think!

If you're following along the hop and you've arrived here from Selma's blog, you're doing just fine. If you'd like to view the entire hop, you can just start here - the hop doesn't have a starting or ending point - just continue on from here, and keep going until you come back. We're just hopping for fun.
Here's my card... I stamped the roses from the "He Knows" image in Adirondack Lemonade ink on watercolor paper, colored a base layer with Touch Twin Markers, then watercolored in layers over the images, allowing the paint to dry each time before I went on. This is a new technique to me that I'm really having fun with. I'm working on a stepped out tutorial, so be looking for that soon. The sentiment I used can be found HERE. I used Lemon and Citrus Crush Flower Soft in the flower centers, and colored my ribbon to match with a Touch Marker.

From here you'll be hopping on to Olga's blog! Thanks for stopping by!
