Thank You Cards

Thanks | Technique Tuesday

Hi there, I hope you had a great weekend!

Today I’ve got a card using the latest Greenhouse Society stamp and die set from Technique Tuesday.  If you love florals, take a look at the Greenhouse Society page to learn how to subscribe for a nice discount on a monthly stamp set!

To start off my card, I use Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and Hero Arts Ultra Fine clear embossing powder to heat emboss the Mixed Flower Bouquet stamp onto Fabriano Artistico Extra White watercolor paper.  Next I colored the image using Karin Brushmarker Pro watercolor pens: Gold, Pale Orange, and Pale Pink for the flowers, and Olive Green for the leaves.  I wet each petal or leave with a waterbrush pen filled with clean clear water and then touched the watercolor pen to the part of the petal or leaf that I wanted to be the darkest, and then used the waterbrush pen to pull out the color to the rest of the petal or leaf.  When I finished coloring, I let the panel dry and then used the coordinating die to cut out the image.

Next, I got out an A2-sized piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and used Post-it Tape to mask off the edges.  Then, using foam blending tools, I blended on Dried Marigold, Tattered Rose, and Spun Sugar Distress inks.

When the the background was dry, I adhered the sentiment which I’d die cut using a die from the coordinating die set.  Then, I backed the floral image with foam tape and adhered it to the panel.  To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
