Thank You card

I used Altenew's Painted Flower stamp set. I really love this set. It has multi-layered stamps, but they can be used individually like I did with this detail stamp on Tim Holtz' Watercolor Paper with Versafine ink. Then I painted the flowers in with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. The pearlescent vellum is really vintage, I don't have any idea when I bought it or who makes it. It's cut with Papertrey Ink's Mat Stack 1 die with Taylored Expressions "thanks" die that was heat embossed with Rangers Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The card base is Papertrey Ink's Tropical Teal.

The vellum die cut was adhered to the watercolor by lightly tracing the mat where I wanted it to be in pencil, applying Scotch Vellum Tape to the water color within the pencil lines, erasing the pencil lines and putting the mat on. Putting the vellum tape on the watercolor rather than the vellum makes a world of difference.

Simon Says For the Love of Plants and it's been colored, so I'm entering it in the 30 Coloring Challenge also.


Another day, another card front lol. This one is on Tim Holtz watercolor paper, stamped with one of the flower detail stamps from Altenew's Painted Flowers with Versafine ink, painted with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. The vellum mat is cut with Papertrey Ink's Mat Stack 1 and adhered with Scotch Vellum Tape (put the tape on the paper and then attach the vellum on top... seriously does not show through), and a thank you from Taylored Expressions inked with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger's Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. I believe this is a personal record for number of brands used in a single card lol.

At the back is a new die (to me) from Papertrey Ink which cuts a coin purse complete with stitch holes that can be made 3 ways two full size pieces stitched together or fold it  horizontally or vertically. I'm itching to get started with it!
