Scenic Beauty Card

Rubber Stamp:
      (Suggestions: N234 Beachfront Boat or N235 Sailboat Bay each by Stampendous)

Stazon Acid-free, Archival Ink Pad (Fast drying and will not bleed when water is used)
 Watercolor pencils (Suggestion: Faber-Castell)
Water brush (Suggestion: Kuretake Co., Ltd.)
Drawing paper (Good quality)
Cardstock for card 8 ¼” x 5 ½” folded in half
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
Plaid cardstock 5” square
Plaid Cardstock 1” x 5 ½”
One color scrap cardstock to match the stamped painting
Paper trimmer
Foam pop dots
Stamp cleaner
Stamp your scene on to drawing paper. Do not rock…press evenly. Wait a few minutes.
Color with watercolor pencils including reflections in the water. Color softly and go over darker areas more than once, rather than pressing hard once.

 Use the water brush on the colors.

Trim painted picture and mat to colored scrap. Apply pop dots to back.

Use edge punch on card.
Center and adhere plaid to card front. Adhere narrow plaid strip across the back under the punched edge. Place matted picture centered over the plaid card front and adhere.

This card can be used for any number of occasions, such as Father’s Day or a masculine birthday card.

 Be sure to clean your rubber stamps, with cleaner made for permanent ink.
