My card today is a bright and cheerful thank you card using the Tasty Trucks stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog.
My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock. If you use Whisper White as a base to your cards a lot, you definitely need the Thick Whisper White cardstock. It is more durable and can stand up much better than the regular one.
I layered the Whisper White first with Bermuda Bay, then Calypso Coral, and lastly Melon Mambo cardstock, each one a half inch smaller than the previous.
I next stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner in Melon Mambo ink, as well as the banners behind the truck.
I stamped the Tasty Truck image in Archival Black ink (oil-based, so water doesn’t make it smear). Then I used the amazing Watercolor Pencils (see below for status) to color it in. I used Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, and Early Espresso. I then went over the coloring using a Blender Pen to get a more consistent look. I fussy cut it out and adhered it over the cardstock.
