You have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince....

 It's challenge time once again at Fab n Funky, and this week we are being sponsored by The Paper Shelter.

The theme this week is 'love' and I think this image is a nice humorous take on the subject. The digi is called I Love you baby and you can find it right here.
For my card I opted for water colour car and Aquablend pencils. I have kept the layout nice and simple so that the focus is on the image.

I needed to photograph this quickly, ready for the challenge, but the finished card will be spending a day or two under a pile of heavy books to flatten it out a bit. Because you are applying quite liberal amounts of water when blending, the paper can curve a bit and, given that the water colour card is very heavy, it will make any other card bend to it's shape rather than the other way around.

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you will come and join us at Fab n Funky this week.

  6. A sweet image and beautifully coloured. I always use Langton Water Colour paper 300gsm, it has never curled on me and you can get a very smooth finish paper too. Hobby Craft sell it or Hugs, Carol S.xx
