I'm back on the SparkleNSprinkle Blog this week with another gorgeous card featuring the "Thinking Of You" Stamp Set!
To start making this card, I made a watercolor panel using the Nuance Magenta Golden Yellow Powder. I love working with these powders. You can actually see the technique I used in this month's Video Technique Club by Demo Donna HERE. I did a bit of an ombre to graduate the color from lighter to darker. Set aside to let dry completely.
Next, I took my Memento Black Ink and stamped the flowers twice. If you stamp after you watercolor, the outline will be very crisp and clear. To accent the leaves, I took my Quicky Glue Pen (an essential for your toolbox!) and applied it to small sections at a time. Then I added Glistening Emerald SparkleNSoft and burnished well with my finger tool. I love SparkleNSoft - so soft with just a touch of glitter!
To accent the center of the leaves, I used the Quicky Glue Pen to add Daisy Microfine Glitter. My card base was made from the Candlelight Cardstock (amazingly sturdy and has a nice texture to it!). Of course I used Tear-ific Tape to make sure everything sticks nice and permanently! I had some scraps of the watercolored paper left, so I used that to make my sentiment! I took the Happy Birthday sentiment that comes with the Thinking of You stamp set (it's amazingly versatile!) and stamped with Memento Black Ink. I took a punch I had on hand and punched out the shape, adhering to the card with Foam Squares for added dimension.
To finish off the card, I added some of my new-found fave, Tan Pull Ribbon, to the top of the card. This is a must try! It's so pretty and fun to work with!
I added some surprises to the inside of this card too! Using my Tear-ific tape, I added a strip of Green Iris Glitter and a strip of Daisy Microfine Glitter! Pretty & fun! :)
I hope you have enjoyed learning how I made this card. See you next time!
