Best Thoughts... You're In My Thoughts

Oh my gosh.....  I forgot how much fun the Aqua Painters were to use....  I actually felt like an artist when I was making this card!!  The best part is....  you can, too!!

We start our card with a Bermuda Bay card base, then added a layer of the new (totally awesome!) In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.  This DSP stack comes in all color collections and features 40 sheets in each stack - 2 each of 2 double-sided designs in 10 colors (the In Color DSP Stacks feature 4 each of 2 double-sided designs in 5 colors).  I love the cursive words on the DSP we used for this card!!

Next, we stamped "You're in My Thoughts" and that gorgeous hydrangea (in Black Stazon ink) from the Best Thoughts Hostess Stamp Set on Whisper White card stock and layered this piece on top of a Basic Black piece to make it really stand out. 

You can only order this set when you host a private class/party (contact me today!),  purchase the starter kit here, or become a club member.

Then, we grabbed our Aquapainter (you can fill the reservoir with water or alcohol) and our Bermuda Bay and Cucumber Crush ink pads and started coloring our flower.  Squeeze your ink pad together to put ink in the lid, then just draw up a small amount of ink with your Aquapainter and begin coloring the flower.  You can always add more color as you go!
