As soon as I saw Stampin' Up!'s latest Photopolymer stamp set, Another Thank You, I put my order in for it immediately! I instantly fell in love with that big 'thank you' that you can see in the center here.
It was featured on the front of our demonstrator magazine, Stampin' Success, in a card that looked like the background had been watercolored. I loved the look and decided to do something similar.
For my card, I colored directly on my biggest acrylic block with Pool Party and Tempting Turquoise markers. I then stamped Off the Grid and some of the splotches from Gorgeous Grunge on it in Bermuda Bay. After it was all inked up I spritzed it with some water and put a piece of Whisper White on top of the block, rubbing the color onto it with my hand. I dried it a bit with my heat tool before stamping the big 'thank you' in VersaMark and embossing it with black embossing powder. The stitches on the side are faux stitches. I just poked the holes with my paper piercing tool and then connected them with my Bermuda Bay marker. This was such a simple card but I absolutely love it! You will be seeing that background technique a lot from me, I'm sure. It's one of my favorites!
