The colours for this week's Your Next Stamp colour challenge (#37) are gorgeous. I needed to create a set of thank you cards and also wanted to work on some of my watercolouring skills, so I decided to get to work (or, should I say, I decided to play)!
For my first card, I used the "smooshing" technique by adding colours from my Zig markers to my craft mat, spritzing it with water and then pressing my watercolour paper onto my mat. This panel was then cut using a My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Rectangle Frames die, but I used the negative piece and recycled the frame.
For my third card, I scribbled my Zig markers on my craft mat (one at a time), spritzed them with water and then used a large paintbrush to add colour to my panel. I dried each colour with my heat tool before adding the next. This panel was also cut using a Simon Says Stamp's Stitched Rectangle die. I think I like this one best.
All cards have a "thanks" added. These were cut from black cardstock using Your Next Stamp's Fancy Thanks die. The die is this month's free with $40 purchase and I picked it up when I placed my most recent order. I love it! I finished everything off with some retired sequins from My Craft Spot.
