Elegant Thanks with a Watercolor Wash

Hey Stampers,

Today I wanted to share a simple card I made with the Watercolor Wash background stamp. I love the look of this stamp and normally, if I want this nackground, I have some painting and prepping (and waiting) to do. Well, I didn’t want to wait…so I thought I’d see what I could do with just two stamps and some embossing powder.


I used some Whisper White cardstock and Blushing Bride ink for my background and I chose  a fairly large sentiment from the One Big Meaning stamp set. I love this color combination, but I found that mounting this background on a Blushing Bride paper panel was pretty boring. I thought about using a piece of foil cardstock, but I wanted the “golds” to match.


The best way to match an embossing powder is (you guessed it) to use the same embossing powder for the backing. I used my Versamark clear ink pad to give myself a narrow border and then heat embossed it with the same gold powder I used for the sentiment. Add a few sequins and there you have it, a perfectly elegant simple card! If you like the look, try it with different colors or sentiments. I’d love to see what you come up with!
