Pretty Cute Stamps January Challenge - Love!

It's time again for our monthly challenge on the Pretty Cute Stamps blog! This month the theme is LOVE! There were so many options for this challenge it was hard to choose which stamp I wanted to use!

I decided to go with the Warm Fuzzies stamp set and use the No-Line colouring technique. There are lots of tutorials on YouTube about this, but basically you are stamping with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolour paper and then watercolouring your image in. Because the Antique Linen is so light it blends into the colouring, but still allows you to see the image lines as you watercolour. This sentiment, also in the set, was perfect for this challenge!

I used Distress Markers to watercolour this adorable bear image. They are one of my fav mediums to watercolour with! I scribbled on an acrylic block with the colour I wanted to use and then used a wet paintbrush to apply the colour to my paper. 

Inside, I used the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment from the Be Mine stamp set - a wonderful Valentine set! 

Here's a look at the sets I used on my card:
