Hello, everyone! Michelle here with a soft and pretty thank you card.
For this card, I started with some watercolour cardstock, which I stamped and white embossed with the “Highline Ironwork Background” stamp from Hero Arts. I coloured a few of the shapes in with Distress markers in Dried Marigold and Worn Lipstick, then sprayed it all with water. I love how some of the spaces stayed darker, and some are very pale. (A great way to get the watercolour look without any watercolouring skills required!)
I then stamped the sentiment from Neat and Tangled’s set, “Kindness Matters” onto a strip of vellum and white embossed that, too. I wrapped the vellum around the watercolour paper, then mounted it onto a white card base, with a strip of peach-coloured cardstock on the side. (I don’t know the exact colour, I’m sorry – it was from my stash of offcuts!)
Make sure you visit again tomorrow – we have a brand new challenge for you that I’m sure you’re going to love! There will also be a chance to win a voucher from our ever-generous sponsor, Simon Says Stamp!
And thanks again to our August collaboration partner, Neat and Tangled 🙂
Thanks for visiting 🙂
This month we are collaborating with Neat & Tangled stamps, and we couldn’t be happier. I love their designs, and their quality. Stamp perfectly, the first time, every time. That’s my kind of stamping!
My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. Always has been. I love the gathering of loved ones, sharing a meal, and being grateful for what we have. This stamp from Neat & Tangled is perfect for this holiday, and I wanted to get a head start on my Thanksgiving cards. Yes, I send them. 🙂
I embossed the image on some watercolor paper using the new Platinum embossing powder from Hero Arts. It’s lovely. You should get some.
Then I used a few colors of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to draw around the embossed image. Then a wet paint brush to spread the color around. Nothing fancy, but I loved the grouping of fall colors around the focal sentiment.
Sprinkled a few sequins around the lower right of the card, rounded the corners, and now the card is ready to go to its new home.
We’ve got a great challenge going on right now, and a new one starting tomorrow. So make sure to join us and you have the chance to win a gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp!
Here’s the completed card…
I really love how the Deco Foils look on dark cardstock, but still wanted
the card to be bright and happy. I decided to die cut the panel with
Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered with foam tape
to a bright pink cardstock for a girly finish!
