Revisiting Love & Marriage

Thanks for joining me today for the April Papertrey Ink Senior DT Challenge. This time around we are bringing back Love & Marriage!
Love & Marriage includes a lovely assortment of images, suitable for many techniques. I've worked with a couple very popular watercolor techniques for today's projects and this stamp set compliments them so very nicely.
First up, I've pressed my ink pads onto this tree block stamp.  Aqua mist from the top corner and limeade ice from the bottom corner.  Before stamping I sprayed a bit of water onto my stamp to help blend the colors and create a watercolor look.  I also tweaked the scalloped border image to follow the curve of the Sentiment Splits: Curve Vertical die cut.
Then topped the card off with a coordinating sentiment, stamped hearts and a ribbon bow.
This next one began with the smooshing technique (see Betsy's tutorial here). 
I smooshed color onto a sheet of cardstock, stamped the hearts on top, and then trimmed by hand leaving a nice broad edge.

Well, that's it from me today. Hope you enjoy this month feature! Now be sure to visit the other Papertrey Ink senior design team girls for more Love & Marriage goodness...
