Three Cards from a Stack Party

Pedaling Past

This set, Pedaling Past, is from the SU Summer Mini Catalogue. I love this set and it was one of the first I bought from this mini. I think it is very versatile and can be used for a variety of occasions.

The image is stamped on Watercolour Paper and then coloured in with ink and an aquapainter or blender pen. I find that the blender pen gives more of a marker-like effect to the image whereas with an aquapainter it works more like a paintbrush. Also, with an aquapainter, because it feels more like a paintbrush, you seem to have less control and might go over the lines. So I guess it depends on what kind of look you want.

Paper: Taken With Teal (retired), Pumpkin Pie, Watercolour Paper, Sweet Pea DSP (retired)

Itty Bitty Bits

The only thing fussy about this card is gluing on the Itty Bitty Bits. Other than that, this is another pretty quick card. Please note that the Turquoise card stock was place only partially in the folder to emboss about 2/3's of it.
