This has to be one of my favorite techniques - stamping with markers to achieve a watercolor look. Never know exactly how the image will turn out. Usually, it's pretty darn cool. Makes me feel like an artist!
Decided to go with a sleeve to cover this gift card holder from a bookstore.
Also had a bookmark (from a craft fair in MI last summer) to go with the gift card and wanted to include it as part of the packaging. Thus the sleeve, making it possible to have the bookmark peek out over the top. CASEd myself here for my design.
Colored the stamp (only the flower portion) with various blue and green tones then spritzed with a mini mister. Stamped onto watercolor paper, cut and punched the border. Cut a piece of teal CS and attached to sleeve. Embellished with a few buttons.
I'm actually on time. The gift is ready ahead of time! Now I can look forward to the bday brunch.
Happy weekend ya'll.
