Thanks Card – Thanks Card Series

Thanks 2015 (1)

Hello guys!

A really quick post to share this watercolor card with a little bit of sparkle and shine. I was inspired by Simon Say Stamp’s Wednesday and Flickr challenges.

I used some of my favorite techniques to create this simple card: embossing, watercoloring and die-cutting. First I made some stamping, masking and embossing with Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder. I also die-cut and heat embossed the sentiment (actually to make it look more smooth I put two layers of powder on it).  Then I took a few markers from my  Zig Clean Color Real Brush set in very light colors, a regular small brush and applied wet-on-wet technique to do my watercoloring. It’s hard to describe the watercoloring process in the post. I tried to give some shading and at the same time to keep everything very light. To be hones it took me some time, but I’m very pleased with the result.
