I hope you each have a fun and safe day today.
This card was created by downloading Doodles Cheers digi stamp and then sizing it to fit my card front (5.5”x4.25”)
Using Ken Oliver’s color burst I water colored my whole image. This can be tricky because the colors like to run if your brush is too wet. To help prevent running I work in stage around my card, then go back and touch up areas that may need more color. Once it’s all colored, I dry it using my heat gun.
At times when water coloring your paper becomes wavy. Using a heat gun to dry your image helps to not only dry your paper quicker, but also will flatten it out some too. When I cannot get the heat gun to flatten my image out enough, I will run my image through my heat laminator a couple of times. This usually does the trick.
Once my image was smooth, I added some fireworks to the back ground using Gelly roll glitter pens. Next I began tearing the edges off around the image to give it a tattered look. From here I glued my image to a black card base. Needing something a little more to brighten up my card I used some black and silver ribbon to make side knot on the card.
This card was quick and simple to make. This card can easily be turned into a thank you card or a birthday card. Leaving off a front sentiment will allow me to later customize this card when I’m ready to use it.
Thank you for stopping by today.
