Hey Everyone! It is Chrissy D again. Kelli was unable to get her post up this morning, so I thought I would fill in! I created this card the same day I did yesterdays card and was playing with my gelatos. I started with some textured card stock and just colored the background with the gelatos. I then used a watercolor brush and dispersed the colors around with some water. I must have looked like I was having a lot of fun, because my 12 year old daughter immediately came in and asked to create with me. FUN bonding time. I love stamping with my girls. Do you stamp with your children too? There are moments I want to run and hide by myself – I call that Mommy therapy. 🙂
Anyways – I easily digress… First, I heat set the water colored background to make sure it was good and dry. I used the beautiful fall images from the Set of Leaves, Acorns, and Kanji and stamped them in Black Stazon. I love the spellbinders dies, but can not recall the name of this one. I used the metallic gelatos to frame the edges and watercolored those as well. Once the edges were dry, to complete the card I stamped the Thinking of You (also available in the Sayings and Quotes sheet) in Black Staz On and tied this beautiful satin ribbon bow to finish the card off.
If this is your first time here, I hope you will take some time to look around and see what our other talented designers have to share. The beauty in their work inspires me to try new things! Enjoy your day!
