Just Because Cards

It’s Crafting Time!


What’s not to love about Kristina Werner’s hand lettering?  The combination of her beautiful writing and this sentiment immediately landed this stamp in my Simon Says Stamp cart.

I started with Canson XL watercolor paper which I cut down with a stitched rectangle die from My Favorite Things to a size just smaller than an A2-size card.

Then, using VersaMark ink and Hero Arts white embossing powder, I heat embossed the sentiment to the center of the panel.

With clean clear water, I wet the paper over and around the sentiment and then dropped in Wisteria Violet and Deep Blue watercolors from Peerless Watercolors.  These watercolors blend beautifully.  I had hoped for soft edges, but I did end up with some hard lines where I let the color pool a bit too much.  I’m still learning!

Once the panel was dry, I adhered it to an A2-sized piece of craft cardstock and then glued the entire thing to a top-folding card base to finish.

Happy crafting!
