Create a Shades of Sea Breeze Thank You Card with VersaMagic DewDrop and VersaFine Clair

Shades of blue make me extremely happy! When I designed this card, I wanted to combine all the amazing inks available from Imagine and as I hoped something magical then happened. See how I create this beautifully blended background using shades of VersaMagic inks and then top it off with stamped sentiments in VersaFine Clair – a truly winning combination.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour


Step 1

Start by stenciling a pattern onto a piece of smooth white cardstock using texture paste and leave to dry.

VersaMagic in Ocean Depth, Aegean Blue, Oasis Green
Step 2

Once the paste is dry, start blending 3 colors of VersaMagic in Ocean Depth, Aegean Blue, Oasis Green over the design.

Step 3

Always start with your darkest color first and then add the lighter colors.

Step 4

Once you are happy with the look, add a final layer of shading over the entire piece with a light shade to blend the colors together.

Step 6

Use small stamp from your stash and stamp the words inside the pattern using VersaFine Clair Twilight.

Step 5

Stamp the “That’s All!” sentiment in VersaFine Twilight onto a piece of white scrap cardstock.

Step 7

Stamp “Thanks” on top of “That’s All” using VersaFine Warm Breeze and trim to size.

Step 8

Color two or three wooden hearts using your VersaMagic ink and leave to dry. Adhere sentiment panel and hearts to your card to finish it off.
