Thank You All – with Harvest Meadow for Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Programme Blog Hop. Well that’s a mouthful and a half! But today I have so much to be thankful for so I am going to address all of that in this post. First of all, if this is your first visit to my website, WELCOME, I hope you enjoy your visit and will subscribe for future updates.
In case you missed it, on Saturday afternoon I earned the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip for the first time. I am so stunned that I have finally hit the goal I set myself three years ago, and keep having to check that it has actually happened. This means that, assuming we are permitted to travel, I will be joining other Achievers on a Caribbean Cruise in May next year. I am trying to be realistic and know that this may not be possible with the state of the world as it currently is, but that is just not the point. Hitting a goal is still hitting a goal.
It seems appropriate that my first Blog Post since earning the Trip I can give a huge THANK YOU to all of you. However you have come to know me, please know that you have helped me to hit this goal. Whether you are one of my fantastic Customers, a member of my AMAZINGLY SUPPORTIVE Team, a follower on YouTube or other social media. This Thank You is for all of YOU!
I had such fun making this card, which I CASEd from the projects in the Mini Catalogue (such a source of inspiration). Although I didn’t have all of the products used in the original, it really didn’t matter because that is where you can get really creative. I used a lot more colour in my version than in the original, which you can find on page 54 of the Mini Catalogue. I wanted the card to have more of a realistic feel for the die cuts.
Adding colour to Fluid 100 Watercolour paper is so simple. All you need is the paper, water, a brush (or in my case I combined water and the brush by using one of our fantastic Water Painters) and finally some colour. You will need more water than you may at first think as the watercolour paper will absorb a lot. I used Bumblebee, Calypso Coral, Soft Succulent, Crumb Cake and Misty Moonlight, all colour from the Designer Series Paper.
My ‘Thank You’ is Crumb Cake on Basic White, which I then fussy cut so it was a more subtle addition. The background is from the Designer Series Paper pack, embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing folder from the Annual Catalogue. I added some Crumb Cake ink to the Designer Series Paper for a slightly aged look, it is VERY subtle, but it actually made quite a difference to the finished project.
I hope you enjoyed your visit. If you did, why not leave a comment for me (further down the post) to let me know what you thought of my version of this card. Then I urge you to continue on the hop by selecting someone from the list below:
