Sending Love Card | Guest Post by Hussena Calcuttawala

Hello everyone,
This is Hussena here, and I am so happy to be guest designing this month at the Tubby Craft blog! I blog at Quill and Punch Works and you can find me on social media here:

Today, I am sharing a card I made using the Lift Up Balloon stamp set from Tubby Craft. I wanted to do some watercoloring using this stamp set. Here's a look at what I have created:

To create this card, I first stenciled the background using a cloud stencil and dye inks. After I was satisfied with the way the background looked, I stamped the image from the Lift Up Balloon set using Tubby Craft Jet Black Dye ink on Canson Montval watercolor paper. I stamped it using black ink, and clear embossed it because I wanted to do watercoloring. After clear heat embossing the image, I colored it using Kuretake Zig Clean Color Brush pens.

I also stamped the little boat basket from the same stamp set, and colored that too using Zig markers. This is a seperate image included in the set, and you can stamp it below the hot air balloon to create one continuous image. I am quite impressed with the thoughtfulness of this set :)

The floral bunch is quite big and you an practise coloring with it. I used different hues of colors as per my liking.

To finish off my card, I stamped a sentiment from the Fancy Sentiments set on a white die-cut banner. I went over it with yellow ink to highlight the sentiment. I also added a stitched rectangle scallop frame to my card front and few clear sequins to complete my card.

Here are the supplies I used for my today's card.

1. Lift Up Balloon Stamp Set 

2. Fancy Sentiments Stamp Set

3. Jet Black Dye Ink Pad

I hope you like my card. If you have any queries/questions regarding any of the supplies or techniques used, please feel free to leave a comment below. I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. I hope I could inspire you with my creation :)

Thank you so much for stopping by!
