Heartfelt Thanks

New card, with Heartfelt Thanks:

This was in response to a technique challenge on SCS - TLC61, Pencil Over. What you do is stamp an image in White Craft Ink on a dark paper, and let it dry (either it sits overnight, or you "fast-forward" with a heat tool). Then color the image (including over the white ink) with watercolor pencils. It really allows the image to "pop", which is especially nice on dark card stock.

This one used Heartfelt Thanks and Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamps; Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip card stock; and White Craft and Chocolate Chip Classic ink. Accessories included Watercolor Pencils, Heat Tool, Square Brads, 1/8" hole punch. I definitely like this technique, and will look for more opportunities to try this.
