Thank Yous; Handmade Thank You Card

Thank Yous - Handmade Thank You Card -

There are just so many reasons for making and sending thank yous to someone. I think Mothers Day is a great one, don't you?

I believe a simple watercolor card would be appreciated by just about everyone. And this handmade thank you card was so fun to make! I was feeling like coloring and this did the trick. I just put a few drops of various reinkers colors onto one of the larger clear blocks to use as a palette. Then my Aquapainter served as my paint brush. Pretty easy!

I first stamped the image in a light ink, Daffodil Delight. Then I painted the image with the inks and Aquapainter, pulling the outline of the Daffodil Delight ink in to soften the edges. Once that dried I reinked some of the detail on the stamps with my Stampin' Write Markers and stamped over the image again. I reinked and stamped the detail a few times until I got the look I wanted. Of course, this was easy since I kept the stamp in my Stamparatus for perfect alignment every time!

Both the floral stamp and the card sentiment came from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.

I used Watercolor Paper for the flower and then White Stampin' Emboss Powder on black card stock for the greeting.

You may not see it in the photo, but I laid out some Balmy Blue ink on a clear block, picked it up with my Aquapainter, and then tapped the brush along the edge of a clear block to achieve the spatter on the card. I loosely covered the images with scrap paper to keep the ink from dropping where I didn't want it to.

How many thank yous could you send out today? I think most people would love receiving a handmade thank you card in these trying times. Why not make a simple watercolor card for them?

As for the Stamparatus, watch this video to see why it's one of my very favorite tools. And why not Like my Facebook Page while you're there? 🙂
