This is the card for my dear father-in-law, who is truly a King of the Grill. It was a fitting card as his gift included packages of steak! I wonder if it would be too forward if we invited ourselves over? My in-laws spend lots of time hanging with family and friends in the summer. They are the gathering point for everyone and always have something yummy cooking on the grill.
I love using the Watercolor Wonder crayons from SU, but have to admit I’m HORRIBLE at using the aqua painter. I have no control and have lots of ‘outside the lines’ moments. I’m never perfect at staying in the lines, but using the blending pen gives me more control.
Tip – to make clouds, you don’t need a fancy stencil. More than likely you have a scalloped circle punch or scissors in your stash. On this card, we punched a scalloped circle and used it as a mask to create random clouds. Just use a sponge, daub it in your favorite sky blue ink, lay the scalloped mask on your image, and sponge away from the mask to create a cloud line. Reposition the mask and work your way around the image. You could also just free hand a mask with a scalloped scissors.
Tip – If you use kitchen foil on your creations, lay the adhesive on the CS and NOT the back of the foil. That’s what I did for the front of the card, but gapped out by the inside. You can see the grooves from my tape runner.
