Thanks for Everything

I tried something different with this Thank You card.... using watercolour pencils.  I first stamped my floral stamp onto a damp baby wipe so the surface was just damp and would pick up the colour from the pencil... it worked really well, scribbling over the surface.  I sprayed a very very light mist of water and stamped  the image onto white card, then I gave liberal spray to the stamped image and it moved the watercolour pencil line around, and I blotted it carefully with paper towel.  I die cut a stitched frame in white card and mounted this with foam sheet over the stamped panel and attached to a matching maroon card.  To finish I stamped the sentiment, and fussy cut it and attached with foam tape too.
I am playing along with CAS Watercolour November challenge - Monochromatic ....   AND .... Just Us Girls challenge #512 - Word Week - Thanks.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy  stamping



  1. What an interesting technique, Robyn. Fantastic results!

  2. Very artsy design, Robyn. It's so cool how the colours moved from the original stamping. Very pretty card! xx

  3. Wow Robyn you have blown me away with how this card turned out. Thanks for telling us how you achieved such a stunning result. Love the simple layout and of course my favourite colour.
    And with my D hat on Thank you sooooooo much for adding it to our gallery and my challenge over at Just Us Girls.

  4. What a great technique, Robyn. I love the bleed out. I'm going to try this so thanks for the tip of wiping with a baby wipe first. And thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.

  5. What an interesting technique, Robyn - I never would have thought of a way to use my watercolour pencils directly onto the stamp. I must try it. Love the way it turned out, and the matching card base. Thanks so much for making a card for CAS Watercolour!


Thank you for taking the time to comment, all encouragement and inspiration is very welcome. May your day be a happy and extra special one, cheers Robyn
