Thinking of You card by Mandy C



Flourish ~ Lost Coast
Watercolour pencils

·       Firstly, make your background…. I spritzed the misters over the card and then dried with a heat tool. Cut to 4.5in x 4in. I usually make an A4 background and then ‘choose’ which piece of background I like the best… this was a piece with a lot of pink on it.

·       Stamp the face from the Classics 5 Set… I’ve used VersaFine in black as this seems to work best with photo-type stamps.   I’ve dried with a heat tool to make sure it’s set and then coloured very lightly with watercolour flesh colour.

·       Using the StazOn, stamp on the background with the ‘word’ background stamp from Classics 4.

·       The face should fit on the card perfectly. Adhere to the left hand side.

·       I like to add words, quotes or sayings to my projects, the ideal stamp set for this is the Creative Expressions Art Sayings set. Brilliant to add a word or two. I chose the saying… Thinking of You. I think it suits the face stamp as she looks lost in thought. I stamped it onto a piece of the background, cut out and glued into position.

·       I felt it lacked something so I added a little flourish from Lost Coast stamps.

·       I edged first with the pink shade of chalk ink and then the charcoal chalk ink.

·       Then I mounted onto black card, which is a very slight bit larger than the main card. A black border seems to lift the whole card. J


  1. That face is perfect for a thinking of you card. I love the misty background.

  2. This is really lovely Mandy. It has so much depth and the face is so striking with the misted background.
