Mid Summer's Night Party Personalized Card

Materials:
Shimmery Chalk, Versamark, Stencil, Q-Tip, and Paper




Using your chalks...it's similar to water coloring!
But it's super fast and super simple



Don't forget the Back of your card
Leave your Imprint behind
So they know it's one of a kind and from the heart



I've wanted to use this lovely Japanese Lantern stencil for the longest time. I'm so happy I bought them. Using my Pearlescent Chalks in Jewel Tones by Pebbles Inc. and my handy dandy VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad, I got to work on this Thank You card to my dear friend Bri.

After laying down my stencil on my cardstock, I filled in the stencil with a Q-tipped filled with VersaMark. Then, I loaded up another Q-tip with chalk color of my choice and went back and colored in the different areas. I used several different colors on different Q-tips. Just go in and fill in here and there. Go back with another color and fill in the other areas. At the end, you can use a Q-tip to lightly go over and blend in the colors. It's super fast and super EZ. It's like putting on eyeshadow. The water color effect is terrific! Have fun.

That's so funny, I just popped by to see what was up and that was the first thing I saw! I loved the card, by the way. It was very sweet and very well made! I like the new business card design too. :)

I think this is one of the prettiest stencils I have. I just lanterns all lit up and hanging in trees...don't you? Just a wonderful way to say "thanks!". Thanks Bri!
