We’ve had a theme here on the blog recently – sending kind notes to everyone in your life. We truly believe in it. You can create a match of the same card or make an individual card for each specific person. To help you, we have yet another Thinking of You project. This time we’re playing with different coloring mediums.
Create a pretty card with soft colors for a sweet gal pal or mom in your life. Let’s start with the background first.
Play with PanPastels! Place the Bloom Wall Stencil over a Whip Cream Cardstock panel. Take out the Sweet Berry PanPastel from the Rich Sorbets PanPastels palette and lightly brush it onto the cardstock using the stencil as guide.
After the background, we placed a Journey Rectangle die cut from Journey Vellum in between the background design and the featured image. This way your design is still visible, but it doesn’t take attention away from your focal image.
Keep up the floral bloom theme. Select your favorite bloom stamp like our featured Flower Swirls Stamp Set. Stamp the images in Clear Pigment Ink first and then emboss in Journey White Embossing Powder. Once it dries, it’s time to color again. This time you have a choice.
Choose between Journey Color Splash watercolor pencils or Liquid Colors for a similar look. You can choose from the products you have available, or test yourself to use a medium you may not be so comfortable with yet. If you grab the pencils, use the Journey Blending Brush to control the color intensity and create the perfect shading. Or if you want to try the Liquid Colors, grab a Dauber Dowel to shade in the Bubble Gum Liquid Color on the flowers and the Limeade Splash Liquid Color on the leaves. The dauber will allow you to shade as well. Both may take some practice, but give it a try. Most importantly, have fun with it.
Finally, complete your project with the sentiment. On Wednesday, we highlighted two Thinking of You sentiments. You can also use the ‘Thinking of you’ from the Peony Blooms Stamp Set. This one has an elegant script to the text that coordinates very well with the Flowers Swirls images. It’s all up to you though.
