Valentines Cards with For Always CTMH

I started to make these cards and I was going to make 10 of the same cards with what I had left over from the For Always kit, but of course I varied each one. I really like how they came out. 

The only consistent element is the embossed red shape cut from the art booking catalog.

new cards from Balloon Ride. 

I love love this paper and the colors and layouts, just everything!

To do this project I also did a new technique which was to take the color ready ribbon and soak it in the sorbet reinker mixed with water and dried to get the  desired shade. I think it makes the coloring more even than by directly applying the ink. 

I also hand colored the balloons with the blending pen and regular ink pads, as I found the pens were too dark.
