I thought I would use it for a Get Well Card which I am popping in the post today.
I took a piece of watercolour paper, a couple of Stampin' Write marker pens and using a stamp positioner (in this case my MISTI), I stamped the branch by first inking in the green and stamping a couple of times. Then I clean off the stamp and inked up the flowers in Melon Mambo and stamped them a couple of times.
I used an Aqua Painter to gently brush a small amount of water across each leaf and flower as I wanted to achieve a smudged watercolour effect.
Next came the sentiment and then I die cut the piece of watercolour card using the largest of my square Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
I die cut two more squares using my Layering Squares Framelits and layered the three to create a topper for my card.
I embossed a square piece of Black card stock with my Sweetheart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The topper covers the debossed heart in the centre of the embossed card stock.
This was added to a layer of Melon Mambo card stock and then the whole thing was adhered to a piece of 6 x 12 card stock, scored at 6 inches on the long side to form a 6 x 6 inch card base.
I was ever so pleased with how the card turned out. I think it looks rather sophisticated and elegant.
Well I hope my recipient likes it too.
That's it from me today. I hope you will pop back for my next project.
Ciao for now,
