Watercoloured Innocent Valentine

I'm trying to get a head start on my valentine's cards so that I'm not scrambling at the last minute as usual! I saw Joanne's tutorial the other day on watercolouring and wanted to give it a try. I must admit that watercolouring is not my favorite way to colour images, mainly because I'm too impatient to wait for the colours to dry. So if you look closely at my image you will see areas where the colour bled into other areas. But it's watercolouring - and that's the beauty of it - it doesn't have to look perfect (thank goodness!).
Joanne also issued a challenge, and I just can't pass up a good challenge. I managed to incorporate all the elements except using the MME Be Loved paper. I don't have any so I substituted some older My Mind's Eye paper. I was able to include the Pure Innocence stamp, watercolouring, machine stitching, Bling Bet and pearls though. I used Mercy's Tuesday sketch challenge for the layout. I thought that this PI girl with her apple would be perfect for one of my kids' teachers.
Well that's all for me friends! Hope you have a good weekend!! Later taters!
