Best Wishes Sketch

Hello everyone,

Today's card is inspired by the sketch at Stamping 411. As usual, it was a very busy Saturday so I needed something really interesting to get creative.


The background paper is Stampin' Up Pretty In Pink which was textured with Sizzix Ring-a-Dings. The remaining paper is Stampin' Up Sweet Pea. The image is Stampin' Up Asian Artistry which was coloured with watercolour crayons, spritzed with water and stamped on watercolour paper. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Short & Sweet. The brad is part of an unknown stash likely either Mulitcrafts or the dollar store.

I'm still very much enamoured with the watercolour crayon technique so I'd expect to see more cards with this technique. I really like this very feminine birthday card. This stamp worked beautifully with the watercolour crayons.

Please enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
