Love You More Than Bacon mixed media card

Hello, everybody!  It's Broni here with you today and I thought I'd show you another mixed media card that I had a lot of fun creating.

I started by stamping my small hearts background stamp from the Catherine Scanlon Random Shapes stamp set using Versamark ink onto my green cardstock.  Then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  You can see that I did a row at a time.
 Next, I stamped the same image in Archival Jet Black ink onto my panel of watercolor paper.  Then I taped off everything around the LOVE word of the Catherine Scanlon Follow Your Heart stamp using some washi tape.  I inked it with the same black ink and peeled the tape away so that I only got the LOVE when I stamped.
I added the "you more than bacon" from an Avery Elle stamp set, then I adhered some pieces of washi tape and sponged some chevrons on using my Mini Chevrons stencil, Distress Worn Lipstick ink, and a large sponge dauber.
In order to do some water coloring, I smooshed my Worn Lipstick ink pad onto my craft sheet, then spritzed it with water.
I used my water brush to color some of the hearts and to lightly color the background.  I also flicked on some of the green and purple inks with my water brush as well.

Here's the finished card again:

There you have it!  Super easy and super fun!  I just love mixed media cards!

Thanks so much for stopping in today!

Happy crafting!
