A Double Duty Card and More Watercoloring

It's almost Valentine's Day, so bear with me as I make a few more cards with that theme.  Today's card is made for a friend with a Valentine's Day birthday. 
I wanted it to have a Valentine's feel but not too much of one.  I thought the heart made from roses was perfect for this.

I used ZIG Kuretake Real Brush Pens to color the card on Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  I really like mixed media paper for watercoloring cards.  It is smoother than cold press watercolor paper and does well with washes.  And it takes stamps well.  If I were doing some heavy duty watercoloring I probably wouldn't use it, but for a card like this it's great.

This card was made with the same stamp set and using the same technique as last Wednesday's heart card.

I'm entering this card in CAS-ual Friday's February 2 challenge - Hearts, Hearts & More Hearts
