Summery Thank You


Hello, hello!

Erica back on the blog today with a bright, cheery and summery Thank You card. Yep, I'm continuing my thank you card collection.

Now, what says summer better than sunflowers? I can't think of many things that score a higher summer score than the lovely sunflower myself so I decided to stamp and mask a few on today's card. I had already decided to use my Zig markers for this card so I used MFT hybrid ink on water colour card stock, I have not had any problems with this ink running or smudging while using my Zig markers on it.

The first sunflower I stamped just off the panel and then I did the same thing on the other side of the panel. Getting my masks out, I covered up the bits I didn't want to overlap and stamped the third one in the middle, slightly lower than the others.

Once it was all stamped and ready, it was time to colour! I love this part! It's so much fin to see how it  all starts to come to life and become a small piece of art.... ish...



When I had finished colouring the flowers I looked at the panel and thought 'it needs more green and some blue for a sky' so I got my distress inks out and blended some light green at the bottom on the panel and some light blue around the top bit. As I didn't have much ink on the sponge it was easy enough to drag the blue down close to the flower petals without mudding up the colours.

Sentiment wise I got a die cut that says 'Thank you' from Studio Katia (you can find that in a stamp and die cut bundle here) and I cut one out in black card stock and one in gold glitter card stock. I layered these on top of each other to create a small shadow behind the glittery gold card stock to make it pop a little bit and adhered to the card using glossy accents.



Apart from the blending needed on the petals, this is a quick and simple card. You can easily make a few in an evening or simplfy the design with another flower that doesn't require such fussy-colouring.

That's it from me for today!



Happy crafting from Erica

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
Right, I'm skipping ahead a little bit here, let's go back to the beginning. I have used the Kindness Medley stamp set which I stamped with VersaMark on smooth black ca…

My card is pretty simple.  I use the Kindness Medley stamp set and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder on some Canson XL watercolor paper. Used my Zig markers to color the flowers in shades of pink.  Sprinkled a few sequins about for a bit of sparkle.
