Thanks a Melon by Tanja

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this thank you card with the Gerda Steiner Designs Melon Friends stamp set:

  • stamp the dragon and the melon border from the Gerda Steiner Designs Melon Friends set with Lawn Fawn Jet Black
  • color the images with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers and add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils
  • add extra texture with a black gel pen and highlights with a white gel pen
  • create a background on a piece of watercolor paper using Distress Ink (Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry), acetate and a Mini Mister
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versafine Clair Nocturne¬†
  • add a strip of patterned paper to the top and bottom of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase



I hope you got inspired.


Hugs,
