Hi! This is my version of the gift card holder for the Technique Challenge over at SCS today. I combined it with the sketch from My Favorite Things Monday Sketch Challenge. I stamped the image from Hot Stuff onto watercolor paper and colored it with classic stamp pads (cocoa, chocolate chip, baroque burgandy, eggplant envy) and a blender pen. The background might look familiar to you, it was a discard from my previous card, but was perfect for this one. I hate to waste paper:) The brad on the paper strip was covered with sticky strip and then dipped into the micro beads, again I had done that for my previous card but couldn't find a place to put it yesterday, but it found a home today. The paper clip was in a package I picked up at the Target $1 spot a couple of months ago. I removed the decorative circle sticker from the top and added sticky tape and then micro beads to coordinate. The flower was just because. I needed the paper clip because I couldn't figure out how to keep the holder closed.
I will hopefully have a watercoloring tutorial by Friday. Happy Monday everyone!
Thanks for stamping by!
