Happy Day After Christmas! Or Boxing Day, or whatever it is to you! Now that Christmas Day is over, it’s time to think about thank you cards. I’ve got several to show you over the next few days—all are quick and easy to make.
Today’s card starts with a Sweet Tooth card stock
base, on which I stamped the “string” image from LJD Whimsical Wishes with Black Licorice hybrid ink. On another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock I stamped one of the smaller scribbles from LJD Whimsical Wishes seven times with Black Licorice hybrid ink. Then, with a water brush and Wild Cherry dye ink, Persimmon dye ink, Lemon Drop dye ink, Limelight dye ink, Tropical Teal dye ink, Blueberry dye ink, and Wild Wisteria dye ink I “water colored” the scribbles. Next I stamped the sentiment, from LJD Sea Life, with Black Licorice hybrid ink and finished off with some black enamel dots.
Tip: since these were small images Sweet Tooth card stock worked fine—if I was going to do larger areas of water color I’d use water color paper.
On the inside, I added Black Licorice card stock and Sweet Tooth card stock layers, cut with Blueprints 20 Die-namics and Blueprints 21 Die-namics, stamped with sentiments from Thankful Thoughts.
And that’s it! Easy peasy and sure to please-y! I know, GROAN, LOL!! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you again soon!
