Watercolored Valentine with Nina-Marie

Hi Everyone, it's Nina-Marie here today sharing a non-traditional Valentine themed card using the adorable Sailmates stamp set. 

In today's video we are going to be doing a lot of watercoloring using distress inks. However, you can use any type of watercolor medium you prefer to achieve the same results. The most important tool you need to create today's card is an inexpensive sponge brush. These card be found at just about any craft store and are a great tool to have around for creating fun effects. 

To see how I created this card, be sure to watch the video below, or over on the Neat & Tangled YouTube channel! 

While I made this card intended as a Valentine, this card is not just limited to Valentine's Day; you could use this design for a simple, love-themed greeting to send to your favorite people! 

So I hope today's card has inspired you to try out some new watercoloring techniques of your own. And be sure to stop back next week for our January release week (starts Jan. 18th) ... I can tell you, its going to be a week full of fun! 

Thanks for spending some time with me and happy creating! 
xoxo, Nina-Marie :)
