A Simple Thank You....

Card wm

Hello Everyone!  Krista here today to share with you a sweet little thank you card you can whip up in no time!  I know the theme isn't shouting fall, but I'm trying to cling on to the last shred of hope it will stay warmer just a little bit longer ;)  This card was definitely fun to make.  I used lots of different mediums since I wanted to create a variety of visual interest with texture!  If you know me you know how much I love my Gelatos®!!!  Its hard for me not to use them on everything I create!  This card is no exception!

I started off using a 4x6 card base on watercolour paper.  I used Gelatos® Double Scoops to draw out my flowers and activated the colour using water and paintbrush.

I took a Yellow Paper Crafter Crayon and chopped it into little pieces with my palette knife, then used Gel Medium to adhere the crayon pieces to the centre of the flowers.  I melted the crayon with a heat tool to create a really cool textured look.PicMonkey Collage2

I wanted this card to have lots of texture so I added some Glass Bead Glitter Gel to the flowers (it goes on white but dries completely clear).  I also applied somg Gelatos®Double Scoop to my craft mat and used a paint brush loaded with water and added some Gelato® splatters to the card.

I also added some Glaze to the stems and grass for one last touch of texture!PicMonkey Collage4


Quick and simple!  And something you can pull together in a pinch using multiple techniques and mediums.
