Then the accident happened. I had intended to cut the heart out of a solid white piece and use it as an overlay over the watercolored piece. Well, I've been sick lately and not quite thinking so clearly. I cut the heart out of the watercolored piece! Oh man. I realized what I had done as soon as I finshed cutting it out. So, scratch my original plan and come up with something else! I wasn't about to throw away what I had already invested my time in!
Thankfully I had used an oversized piece of water color paper so I was able to use a die to cut it out. I had left the bottom portion unsplattered so I got my paints back out and added a lot more splatters after taking out all the little hearts. I plan to use those hearts on another project in the future. Ok, so I had a panel. Now what to do with it? I didn't like the look of a colored piece behind the heart so I used a plain piece of watercolor paper. I then added a bit of sparkle with the Spectrum Noir glitter marker in some of the hearts. And because purple is my favorite color, I colored the skunk with different shades of purple to match! Plus the red heart of course.
The little black banner is cut from one of the Flag Banner dies. The sentiment is from the Simply Said set and embossed in silver. I popped the skunk up with foam tape and added glitter marker to the heart (I can't help it!). Mounted all of those to a red piece of cardstock and finally onto a black card base. Whew! I just love it when an accident becomes a happy accident!
