Valentine card

This takes a little planning but once that is done the rest is fairly fast. Use glossy paper and post it notes. I used 3 shades of pink. cover the areas of the card you want to stay white with post it. Brayer on the lightest shade. Keeping white covered, cover the areas to remain light pink. Brayer with medium color. Cover any area to stay medium and brayer on the darkest color. Remove Post its and stamp main images wherever you desire. *** If you want images to be contained in one area and not overlap, simply mask off where it is not desired. This looks and sounds complicated but it isn't. Just choose colors wisely as you are layering them. Some combinations do not layer with good results. Remember color mixing in school? You might want to stay monochromatic or test colors first.
