Hello everyone -- Sharon back with you again today in the CLASSroom. Happy September! I hope you've enjoyed helping us celebrate Concord & 9th's 1st birthday this week here in the CLASSroom! They immediately caught my eye when they came onto the stamping scene last year and have quickly become one of my favorite stamp companies, with fresh and fun designs! Today I'm using a very pretty and great set to have on hand, Painted Thank You:

Here's how I literally "painted" this thank you card:
1. On a 4.25" x 5.50" panel of watercolor paper, clear heat emboss the thank you sentiment in the center.
2. Use a circle die to lightly trace a circle around the sentiment with a pencil.
3. Wet the entire area inside the circle with clean water, using a waterbrush.
5. Using the waterbrush, wet the No. 55 Green Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor until it is watered down a little, then apply the color to the wet paper. Adjust color as necessary, adding a little more ink or water here and there, to achieve variation in color.
