I hope you are all doing well! I am popping in today to share a quick card I made using this month's new release, Thanks for Everything stamp/die duo, as well as past releases: Sending My Love stamp/word die duo, Cherry Blossom, and the ODBD Pierced Rectangle dies.
I decided to try a vintage watercolor look with Copics instead of real watercolor. To achieve the vintage look, I stamped with Memento Rich Chocolate, then because I wanted a very light tone effect, I first "painted" on Copic Colorless Blender to wet the area, then I added just a touch of color to my flower petals and with the colorless blender drew it in to toward the center and blending it out. For the centers of the cherry blossoms I used a pale yellow to just barely add color. I did the same with the leaves and stems. I added touches of E31 copic for that tanish tone. I cut the word dies from Sending My Love and Thanks for Everything from Kraft card stock, and used that same card stock for my base. For the off frame look of my image, I stamped the two images, then die cut the outter frame and inner cut using two sizes of the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles. I popped the center panel up on foam tape for dimension.
Blessings and Love,
