Simon Says Stamp Bouquet of Thanks II

May I say how grateful I am for YOU?!  I appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog and hope you enjoy everything you see!  🙂  I made this card using Simon Says Stamp’s Bouquet of Thanks set, stamping it out onto a piece of Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper with Versafine Onyx Black permanent ink.  I proceeded to color the image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  To create the watery gray background, I just outlined the image, a little at a time, with one of the gray markers and spread the color liberally with lots of water!  Finally, I spattered water from a paint brush and then some of the gray and pink ink watered down and lastly, a little black craft paint.

To complete my card, I mounted the panel onto a layer of black card stock, then onto a base card of white.  I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black.

I want to share a completely different card using the same stamp set!  The dotted background is actually part of the packaging from Unity Stamps and I had it tucked away in my stash!  I cut it down to A2 size (4 1/4″  X 5 1/2″) then heat-embossed the image in black.  Using my Prismacolor Pencils  I colored in the petals with shades of brown and then a layer of white; I used a damp paint brush to soften the color a bit.  I layered the panel onto white card stock, and then a base card of brown.  I love the versatility of this stamp set!
