Creative Thank You

Hello everyone,

Today's card is inspired by two challenges with three requirements. Everything Old Is New Again asked that we use a forgotten colouring medium. The Belli Challenge provided a sketch and asked that clips be incorporated.

The background paper is Stampin' Up Sweet Pea designer series paper. The red element is Stampin' Up Ruby Red and was textured with Sizzix Large Dots. The image, Hero Arts Native Grass, was coloured with Stampin' Up Watercolour crayons, spritzed with water and stamped on watercolour paper. The sentiment is Hero Arts Thoughtful Messages. The clips are Keepsakes Memories from Multicrafts. The ribbon is American Crafts Brown Ruffles.

Though not necessarily a fun card perse, I had a great time incorporating these challenges into a single card. I really love the results. The watercolour crayons are very easy to apply directly onto the rubber stamp and the effect is so lovely. It actually makes me feel more like an artist. I'd never used clips before either, I couldn't quite figure them out, but am rather pleased with the results. I'll certainly find a way to incorporate them in future projects.

I hope you enjoy and come back to SPI again soon.
