watercolors for card makers class. I keep putting my watercolors aside even though I know how to use them and love using them, so I figured taking the class will maybe get me in the habit again of using them more often. We can only hope...
So because of that, I decided to use their title sample as a starting point and created the thank you card. Love the way it turned out. Simple, colorful and spring like.
I used 90# watercolor paper from a cheapie w/c pad. The thank you is an eCut file from Quietfire Design and can be found here on the Silhouette online store. I enlarged it to approx 4.5"w, cut it out and then used it as a stencil and traced around it with a light pencil mark, then watercolored around the letters using a lot of water to merge and bleed my colors. Trimmed it down and adhered to a basic white card front (5.5"w x 4.25"h)
I had these black photo corners which I got from Scrapbook adhesives a while back. I inked the corner (protecting the rest of the sticker) with Versamark and embossed with Queen's Gold, then attached to my watercolor piece.
Stamped the oval "thank you" sentiment (Quietfire Design) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.
And that's it. Click on the card image to enlarge. Enjoy
