Funky Black-eyed Suzan
What a fun folded card. This is called a z-fold card which just means it looks like a "z" when it is standing. Very simple to achieve this effect......take a note card that is folded and fold the front back onto itself so you are folding the front of the card in half.
I stamped these funky black-eyed suzan (Sunday Int'l, Dee Gruenig) flower with Lyra watercolor crayons. Quick and easy way to get a watercolor effect. Used the same technique to color and stamp the Happy (Sunday Int'l, Dee Gruenig) Birthday saying.
Basic instructions for using Lyra watercolor crayons:
Color directly onto stamp image with watercolor crayons. When all the color is on the image I spritzed it with water with a Ranger mini mister. I like the Ranger brand mister because it has a nice fine mist of water and not big drops. After the image it printed on cardstock zap it with heat tool to stop the watercolor effect. I like it to just spread out a little not too blurry looking and that is it.
