#632 – Thank You

Hello! Finally posting a card I’d made and sent to a dear blogging friend.. I somehow missed posting about this card then, so here it is now! 🙂


Frankly, when I made this card, I had no idea where I was going – not even what stamp sets I would use – I just built it as it came.

I used Ellen Hutson Mondo Peony stamp set – beautiful large flowers, just perfect for some watercoloring. I wanted to watercolor this using Gansai Tambi colors, so heat embossed it in black, so I wouldn’t have to worry about the pigment washing out the flower’s outline. Like I said, I watercolored them, then trimmed the flowers and leaves, arranging them over a longish watercolor paper panel.. the dimension is not something I measured. I just wanted a longish card, and just went with what pleased my eye. 🙂


Once I finished with this, I painted the background, then used Penny Black Trailing Vines stencil with to add some more details to the background. I then adhered the flowers and leaves on top, trimming the excess and adhered the whole thing on a dark grey cardstock.

Then came the sentiment, a combination of Simon Says Stamp You die cut and Reverse Confetti All About You stamp. I added a few drops of Nuvo Drops in Bright Gold and Ebony Black for embellishing.
