Swashy Letters with Nichol

Hello! Nichol here today with a Valentine's card featuring the new Swashy Letters and Swashy Upper Letters. These awesome alphabet stamps makes creating custom greetings (or personalizing things like envelopes, tags, etc.) so super easy! Everyone can appear to be a calligraphy expert with these awesome stamps!

For the background and frame, I die cut Bristol Smooth Cardstock with a Madison Ave Frame Die. On the background panel, I stamped Swashy Letters and Swashy Upper Letters stamps with Versamark Ink and heat embossed the letters/greeting with white embossing powder.
I applied Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors over the background and embossed greeting and let the ink run down the panel and then set is aside to air dry.

I stamped the cat and heart from the Three Amigos Stamp Set on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using black ink and colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and blended the inks with a water brush pen. Once the images were dry I die cut them with the coordinating Three Amigos Dies. The hearts were adhered to the background and finished with a layer of Glossy Accents. A scattering of iridescent heart confetti finish the Valentine's card design.
