Here is my card I especially made for you today :)


To start, I pulled out newly released Studio Katia A Cup of Thanks Stamp Set and stamped the image onto watercolor paper.


I watercolored it with my Mijello Misson Gold Watercolor Paints and splattered watercolor paints with water here and there as shown.


I die cut 'thanks' sentiment from Studio Katia A Cup of Thanks Dies from black card stock. I then rubbed it with WOW! Embossing Pad and sprinkled WOW! Black Twinkle Embossing Powder over it. I heat set it using heat gun and repeated this process two times.


To finish, I stamped another sentiment from same stamp set where I wanted it and mounted watercolor panel onto A2 sized beige card base.

Your next stop is amazing Amy Tsuruta's blog! Don't miss out her wonderful project!
