Wishing you Love and Laughter

Happy Valentine’s Day to those who didn’t read my first post! Wishing you love and laughter today and everyday for the rest of 2018! For my 2nd post, I’m sharing a card I made for our challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters where the theme is “A Banner Year” so join us with any card that features banners, pennants, flags…

The Ton wildflowers main

To make this card, I first stamped the banner from The Ton’s “Basic Banners” stamp set, and then stamped it again on a large post it note and ran it through my Brother’s scan and cut to have a mask. I placed the mask over the stamped banner and then stamped the flowers from Wishful Wildflowers from The Ton again, with Versamark and heat embossed it with Wow’s white embossing powder.

In the banner I wanted a custom sentiment for a New year’s card, so I got my daughter to write in it for me, as she’s so good in hand lettering! Here she couldn’t really show off her talent as the space was so narrow so I’m sharing one of her other letterings.

This is something I’m always telling her so it must have stuck!

The flowers were painted with Winsor and Newton paints by first adding water using a watercolor brush and then dropped in a splotch of paint, which just spread out where there was water. To finish I added paint drops on random parts of the card. I couldn’t film it as my video set up is not ready yet in my new craft room but I’m sharing a video of the same process to show you how easy it is to do this type of water colouring!

Well, thanks for dropping by and I hope you liked all I shared. Do pop over to see my team mates wonderful cards over at The Sisterhood of Crafters and join in the fun! Have a great day full of Love and Laughter!
