Hello everyone! I am still battling this rotten cold, and yet being more productive than ever - go figure. I think it's just my way of distracting myself from how awful I'm feeling LOL - that and I really have a ton to do (don't I always? Single moms know how it is!!). That and regardless of how I feel - I ALWAYS feel better when I'm making cards:
This is a 4-Bar Sized Card
I thought making a get well soon card was rather apt today - so that's what I did. I pulled out the new Simon Says Stamp Artsy Flower Parts stamp set and dies as I've been wanting to heat emboss the line images and watercolour them ever since I got the set.
I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, and had stamped the images onto Strathmore Ready Cut Cold Press watercolour paper (honestly this watercolour paper works just as well as the Canson XL which is my favourite with the Zigs - so either/or works in my opinion).
I did some sponging with Pumice Stone Distress Ink on the background, and some water splattering over that to create the textured look. The sentiment is from the new SSS Handlettered Encouragement stamp set (that I LOVE) and was heat embossed onto black card stock.
I finished off the inside of the card with another sentiment from the Hand Lettered Encouragement stamp set and one of the stamped and watercolored images and that was it!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:
