Joy Clair First Release,Day Three- Hugs And Smiles

Happy Wednesday and welcome to day three of the first ever release from Joy Clair. Today's featured stamps are a very cute modern set called Hugs And Smiles. Besides Hello Autumn, this may be my personal favorite of the entire release.

I am just in love with the current water color trend in stationery. I stamped my images onto water color paper with Black Memento Ink and allowed it to dry thoroughly. I used my Spectrum Aqua markers as my water coloring medium. I simply swiped the pen onto a clear stamp block and picked the color up with a water brush. After I finished coloring, I flicked the bristles of the water brush to make the droplets. I let it dry for several hours and then constructed my card. The sentiment tag was made by coloring a clear block with Spectrum Aqua markers them spritzing it with water and swiping it across a piece of water color paper. I let that dry for a while, then stamped the sentiment before I die cut it into a tag shape.

I then mounted the large panel onto a pink card base, added the sentiment tag with foam tape and then added a twine string bow finished off with a matching enamel dot. This would be a great card to make in multiples using different colors and switching up the sentiment to make a card set to give away as a gift.
