Highlight the Details with Watercolor Pencils
Using the paper airplane stamp from Wish You Were Here (B1645), I created my own patterned paper. This would look great if it were tone on tone using colored cardstock and ink, but it looks a little plain using Pewter Ink (Z2832) on White Daisy Cardstock (X6027).
By adding Watercolor Pencils (Z4242), I was able to highlight the image and make it stand out from the background. The pencils add subtle shading (I did not add water this time), but you could achieve a more dramatic look using ShinHan Markers (Z9977).
I cut the stamped panel down using the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts (this set is currently unavailable, but it will be back soon!). I added the panel to the rainbow paper from I Heart Us Paper Packet (X7242B)…this paper makes me so happy! I finished off the card with more stamped images and a sentiment from Wish You Were Here (B1645).
