It’s Jess and I’m back with another card for you today! I’m always in need of cards for those occasions that pop up at the last minute. It’s nice to have a few on hand that can work for many different situations so you’ll always have something if you’re in a pinch!
With that in mind, I designed this card using Brutus Monroe’s Botanical Banners stamp set. This is one of my favorite floral stamp sets – it’s so versatile! I’ve used this is so many ways and it never disappoints.
To get started, I cut down a piece of cardstock using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangle dies. I stamped the large floral image from the set in black ink and grabbed a few Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I scribbled on my media mat with the markers and spritzed them with water. I used a water brush to do a very basic ‘loose watercolor’ technique. This is basically a fancy way of saying I didn’t want to stay in the lines! While I still had my water brush wet and full of color, I flicked on some color to add a little more interest to the rest of my background.
Then, I grabbed some clear dew drops in different sizes and colored them with a Copic marker to match my card. I adhered them using Matte Multi Medium and then stamped out my sentiment, ‘thinking of you.’ I fussy cut the sentiment and then popped it up on foam for some dimension.
To finish things off, I matted my card front with some sturdy kraft cardstock. I really like how simple, but elegant, this card is. It’s a great just because card, but also works really well as a sympathy card. Excellent to have on hand!
Hugs and love to you all,
