I am sure you have noticed how much I absolutely love the Ink Smooching Technique!  It just adds so much to the card and is so easy to do.  I have shared a step-by-step tutorial on ink smooching and watercolor background, you can download it now by CLICKING HERE.

The Pearl Basic Jewels are the perfect accent to step up this card.  The muted tone goes well with the Wood Textures DSP that adds a little rustic touch to the heart.

Melon Mambo goes so well with the tone of the Wood Textures DSP.  I am on my 3rd pack of the Wood Textures DSP, that is how much I LOVE it.  I really hope it stays around for awhile as I will be lost without it….but then again, I am sure that Stampin’ Up! will come out with another fabulous DSP stack and I will fall head over heals for…as I always do!
