Handmade Thank You Card

Thanks So Much Card

Hello Friends,

Here's a super simple, super quick handmade Thank You card for you to make.  These are my March Thank You Cards.   I let my Falling In Love Designer Paper do the heavy lifting.  A 3" Square of Sweet Sugarplum Card Stock and a 3" Square of Falling in Love Designer Paper wrapped with Blushing Bride Baker's Twine takes care of my focal point.  To simulate a washi tape look, I stamped with the washi tape stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.  The "Thanks so much" stamp is from the versatile B.Y.O.P. Stamp Set.

Penned & Painted and the Color Wash Technique

Penned & Painted Stampin' Up!

 Hello Friends,

Do you enjoy learning new stamping techniques?  It's fun step outside the box and try new thing.  The Penned & Painted stamp set by Stampin' Up! has some pretty outline stamps that look fabulous using the Color Wash Technique.  

Color Wash Technique

Color Wash Technique

The trick to coloring on a dark card stock is a technique called Color Washing.  First, stamp and heat emboss your images.  This gives you a nice outline.  Next, paint on a layer of Whisper White Ink inside each outline.  After the White Ink is dry, color your flowers with either an aqua painter or a clear Wink of Stella Brush.  See the video below to see how to watercolor with the Wink of Stella Brush.

Color Wash Technique

 The flowers take on a translucent look using this technique.   And painting with the Wink of Stella Brush gives the flower a shimmery finish as well.  The flowers are gorgeous and they look even better in real life.

I used the Wink of Stella instead of an Aqua Painter to color my flowers.  The subtle glimmer is gorgeous.
