Hello sweet friends!
First of all HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone!
The whole a2z Scrapbooking Team wants to wish you a great and amazing Thanksgiving!!
Zoey’s here today for a card I made for a friend of mine. I am so THANKFUL to have her in my life, she is amazing.
Here’s the list of material I have used :
- Hero Arts Making The World A Better Place
- Hero Arts Stencil Tile Works
- Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste
- Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel
- Sharpie Retractable Fine Point Permanent Marker Black
- Ranger Watercolor Paper
To add some texture , while the watercolor were still wet, I grabbed a piece of bubble wrap paper and placed it over the flower for a few seconds, then I lifted it and it left a cool texture!
To add even more texture I stamped the second flower (which is the same flower but it has shadows) – when stamping I made sure that the stamp was slightly off set.
Then I added more watercolor around the flower and set the piece aside to get really dry.
I added some Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste through one of my favorite stencil : Hero Arts Stencil Tile Works and I let it dry.
Note that I didn’t apply the paste perfectly on the paper!
I also added some more blue color on the background because it was looking…too white and not enough messy for my style…right? LOL!! So I added color and few splashes here and there.
To finish the card I traced a border around the card using Sharpie Retractable Fine Point Permanent Marker Black. And that was it — I used foam adhesive to adhere the flower to the background.
What do you think? I hope you will like it.. here’s some photo!
That amazing stamp set also has a message on multiple lines that I find PERFECT for the inside card.
Few words before I leave you….
