Welcome back to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. My Colorful Seasons Thanks card was created with the Colorful Seasons Bundle (available June 1st). Here are our colors for this week:
I started by doing a little watercolor wash in So Saffron on some Canson Watercolor Paper with my Aqua Painter. Once it was dry, I stamped Thank You, from One Big Meaning, in Early Expresso ink right onto the art panel. Next, I die cut the tree limb from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets Dies(available June 1st as a bundle with Colorful Seasons stamp set) in Early Expresso card stock. I used small dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere it to the art panel, then stamped the flowers. Each of the flowers was stamped in Calypso Coral onto Whisper White Thick card stock, some full strength, and a couple of them stamped off once.
The flowers were adhered with Liquid Glue and Dimensionals. The branch looked too lonely without a bird sitting on it, so I die cut the smallest bird from the Birds & Blossoms Thinlets in Early Expresso. I cut a small piece of Calypso Coral paper to add under his wing, and punched a small circle in So Saffron for his eye. He was then adhered to the panel with dimensionals. The whole art panel was then popped onto the Early Expresso card stock base with dimensionals.
Whisper White card stock was layered onto So Saffron with liquid glue, then adhered to the Early Expresso base with more liquid glue. I adhered more of the small flowers to the corner with liquid glue and left room for writing a note.
A complete list of stamping supplies used to create the Colorful Seasons Thanks card will be at the end of the post, along with card stock cuts in inches.
