Trio of Bright and Sweet Note Cards
From the Designer: "A trio of fun-to-create note cards using three different coloring techniques. The first card ("Thank you so much") was created using coloring pencils from Leisure Arts. The coloring methods used on the card front resulted in a bright card with depth. The second card was created using Leisure Arts watercolor pencils. The card was quick to make and has a beautiful watercolor flower image as the card's focal point. The third card is reminiscent of 1960's print with its distress watercolor image and edging. The finishing touch on the card was the gold "Hello" sticker (created using the mini Zyron Make a Sticker) mounted on vellum paper. Each card is unique and a great excuse to use some of your favorite coloring techniques!"
