Hope you are having a great weekend! We had some workers here putting in some new steps to the patio door. I am really glad to have that done.
Do you have any grad parties this summer? I seemed to have made lots of graduation cards this year. I made this Graduation Card for my husband's cousin. Well, actually, I made a total of four cards in this design. Two were easels and the other regular cards. My neighbor needed two grad cards and my friend needed one too---I sold those three and made one to send to our cousin.
Stamps: Graduates from The Stamping Place; Sentiment from DRS Designs
Decorative Paper: K & Company
CS: Various shades of lavender and Purple
Label Die Cut: A Muse Studio
Sheer Peacock Blue Ribbon: Jo-Ann Fabric Store
- Make an easel card from the dark purple CS
- Add a layer of CS and one of the DP
- Stamp the image with black ink
- Using the markers, watercolor the people
Here's how I watercolor with Markers: Scribble the marker on an acrylic block and pick up the color with a slightly wet paint brush. Fill the stamped area with color and pick up more water and color when the brush is dry.
- Layer with dark purple CS and add to card
- Tie a big bow in sheer ribbon and glue to top of card
- Stamp the sentiment and die cut
- Add to the bottom
- Add a few pearls
- Make the envelope pretty too by adding a piece of the DP to the flap
*********A Few Fun Challenges for my Easel Graduation Card:
