Hello everyone!! This a fine evening in our house. The crockpot smells incredible and I have a masterpiece theater in our prime cue to wrap up!!! Plus I have a card to share with you wonderful people! 😊 I made this card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge and for the Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday Challenge: Faux Brush Lettering.
First, I stamped my PTI sentiment (Think Big Favorites #2) on watercolored paper in light real ink. Then I watercolored with darker teal ink to create a faux brushstock look as Amy demonstrated in her wonderful video. Then I stamped the floral wreath in several ink colors using Hero Arts Flower Garden set. I then watercolored over the flowers and leaves to soften the look and make it similar to the sentiment. When that was all dry I watercolored the edges of the panel with my real ink again.
I then stamped “celebrate”(which I created from a Martha Stewart set) on a strip of black paper and white embossed it then added foam tape to the back. I created the striped pattern paper with just a marker and a ruler. I then adhered it to my card base. Next, I mounted my watercolored panel to craft foam then to my card base with spray adhesive. Lastly, I attached the “celebrate” and added black rhinestones. Thanks for checking out my card! I hope you enjoyed!
