I’m so excited that my Hawaii trip is just in a week or so. Counting the days!! Thanks to all of you for helping me get there. You’re the bestest!!!
So my card today is for Stamping and Blogging and a very, very simple sketch. I thought to myself…”self, how can you make this special”?
Then it came to me. I loved the Watercolor Card I did for my Grandson….so simple but impressive with that heavy watercolor paper. Yummy!! So I’m doing it again! It’s my newest Favorite thing to do! lol
I think it pretty much resembles the sketch don’t you?
So for this card I made the card base a bit smaller it’s 5 1/2 x 8 and scored at 4”. The mat is cut to 3 x 4 1/2.
All I did was take one of those cheap sponge paint brushes and some reinker mixed in a bit of water and painted or swiped my brush where I wanted color. In this case it is Pear Pizzazz on the top and Pool Party on the bottom. Then I let it dry. If you get impatient you can use your heat too…….okay I fess up I used the heat tool to speed up the drying time.
Then I just stamped the Hello There Stamp in Stazon. The flags were done using the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack and finished it off with a little twine. I’m getting really addicted to matching envelope for Everything. For those of you that know me know I am a matchy-matchy girl!!! I love the way this turned out. I hope you do too.
Supplies needed to recreate this card:
- Sponge Paint Brush
