Pun Intended For a Happy Card
I really had to create one last project with Pun Intended…a great little host rewards set from the retiring catalog. The background is all on watercolor paper. Inspiration for using watercolor paper and water color pencils was the April Paper Pumpkin Set! You can see the April Paper Pumpkin here! I loved the water color look of that kit and decided to use watercolor pencils and watercolor paper to create this cute little card. The background image of the camera is stamped in Smoky Slate. The idea was not to be too perfect because I wanted it to look like a vintage paper background. Then, I went in and colored randomly with watercolor pencils and blended it in with an aqua painter. Fun! No Pun!
It needed a little something more, so I wrapped the Black Baker’s Twine around 3 times for a bottom border. I resisted the urge to do a bow. You know I always like a bow. But the twine seemed enough and I walked away before it was too late! The camera and banner were stamped on watercolor paper and then colored in and fussy cut on the camera and punch with the banner punch for the sentiment. Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight were just the color I was drawn to. They seemed to keep this a light, happy card. I tried black as the base card, but it was too heavy. If you like the Pun Intended stamp set, don’t forget it is retiring with the catalog May 31st. And if you have some other items on your wish list, then earn your Stampin’ Rewards and get this set! You won’t regret it.
