Another Thank You

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.

Another Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set From Stampin' Up!

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!
