Thinking of You

Hello, everyone!  It's Melissa back with one more post as a guest designer here at Rubber Dance Stamps.  This time, I created a clean and simple thinking of you card!



I stamped both the bee image & sentiment (Just a Note set) in black ink to begin.  Crystal Effects were then applied to the wings to add some shine.  While that was drying, I watercolored the body using black and yellow watercolors.  The yellow watercolor actually has some shimmer to it (see photo below)!


Once everything was dry, I mounted the main panel on black cardstock to create a frame and then popped up the assembled piece with foam dots to add dimension.

I don't know about you, but I need a basic greeting card like this quite often.  This one is so easy to make and I can't wait to make more of these to send to friends and family!

Stop by my blog when you have time this week as I have another clean and simple creation to share with you!

Thank you so much, Bibi, for this guest designer opportunity!  It's been fun and such an honor to showcase your wonderful stamps!

  4. CAS cards as well as having appeal to most people show off stamped images to their best effect. The details you've added (shiny wings & body)to the bee make all the difference, Melissa. Simple but beautiful.
