Water Coloured Background & Ecutter Hello

What's up friends?!  Have I told you lately how much I love you?  Well I do.  :)  Want me to prove it?  If you are Canadian and not currently purchasing Stampin' Up! products from another demonstrator, send me your current mailing address (my contact info is HERE).  I've got surprises heading out in the mail soon and I think you might want one.  :)

Now on to today's card.  This one is SO simple, but it really is a showstopper - the best combination.
Tips to create this beautiful background:
  • stamp the Dictionary stamp with VersaMark ink onto Watercolour Paper
  • cover with White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool
  • Using an Aqua Painter and the ink colours of your choice, colour over the embossed background  
Where does that fancy dancy 'hello' come from?  I used my ecutter and the MDS download Moments Ago.

Stamps: Dictionary
Ink: VersaMark, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana
Paper: Watercolour, Whisper White
MDS: Moments Ago Download
Other: Aqua Painter, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, ecutter
All supplies available in My Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Store

I hope you'll give this simple water coloured background a try, and don't forget to send me your mailing address so I can send you a surprise!

Happy Stampin'
