I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far! Several weeks ago my husband and I received an anniversary card (see below) and I immediately knew that I wanted to try and make a similar looking card.
It was really easy to make and each time you do it, you get a completely different look! I used one of my acrylic blocks, several Stampin’ Write markers and a spritzer. I colored directly onto my block with the markers. There’s no right way to do this. Then I spritzed it with water and stamped it onto my paper. I did try doing this directly onto the base of my card but I was never happy with it – it always seemed crooked to me. So, I ended up cutting it and mounting it onto Bermuda Bay cardstock. As I said, this is really easy and it will look very different each time you do it. You can lightly stamp it or press down harder for a different look. I used Whisper White cardstock which is fine as long as you don’t get the paper too terribly wet but you can use watercolor paper too. The markers I used were: Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo. The first three can only be purchased as a set in the Brights collection but the Island Indigo can be purchased separately. See the product list below.
I finished the card by embossing my sentiment (from the set Build a Birthday) with silver embossing powder. Give this technique a try! I’d love to see what you create!
