I have used one of my favourite techniques “tone on tone”stamping with a clear sticky ink for the background by repeat stamping a single image. This can be such an effective technique when you want to maximize the use of your stamps and have limit supplies of paper packs.

The layout of the card design I have kept rather simple so that this card can be easily mass produced.

Before watercolouring these cute images in I heat embossed with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder on watercolour cardstock.

Once I have finished watercolouring these images in I die cut them out and mounted them with foam mount adheasive.

To finish off the card I have stamped the sentiment with Distress Oxide Walnut Stain ink on a strip of white cardstock and placed below the trio of images.Jo Herbert - 291117 Summer Card

Here is the You Tube video on how I made this fun card.
