This is a simple wet-on-wet watercolor technique on a piece of cardstock, created by brushing the paper with water, and adding drops of paint to the wet paper for little explosions of color.
I used a Cricut to cut hearts, but you can cut by hand, or use your favorite die-cut or other method. The speckles are from flicking droplets of plain water onto the slightly damp paint.

Here, the watercolor heart was painted in a similar manner as the Winterscape Trees in this CutCardStock post, with a hand-lettered “love.” This one is my favorite!

Here, a little wet-on-wet puddle of color, with a hand drawn heart, and hand-lettered “love.”
