I have a couple of 'big' stamps, and this is one of them. I bought this stamp with the intention of using it to make Valentine cards some day. But I think it would be cute to send to someone as a 'thinking of you' card, or as a 'thank you' card.
I stamped and colored the image twice. The first time was with watercolor paper, ink pads, and blending pens. I made the heart pink, and decided it needed to be red. Putting red over the pink did not work. So, I started over, and used very vanillla paper and my Prismacolor colored pencils instead. I seem to have more control with the pencils than the blenders when it comes to watercoloring, but I don't have all the 'SU' colors in pencils. One of these days, I hope to run across a store that carries more individual colors than my local Michael's does. Anyway, it took longer than I planned to make this card, but time spent playing and experimenting with stuff is time well-spent.
