To make this type of card I start first with a piece of watercolor paper that measures 6" by 4" and coat it with a thin layer of gesso, then let it dry. I began with a stencil called Bodacious Pods made by Artistcellar. I placed the stencil over my watercolor paper and applied Tsukineko's Radiant Neon Pigment Inks in Electric Pink and Electric Orange using a stencil brush.
After I had enough ink on the background I dried it with a heat gun. Then I stamped my image, phase and some random background stamps with StazOn permanent ink in the new Spiced Chai color. The image is Lonely Girl by Dina Wakley and the phrase is from Dyan Reaveley. I applied clear embossing powder to this and melted it with my heat gun.
The top coat of aqua was done with acrylic paint using the Fibo stencil and a small sponge.
After I applied the paint and let it dry I matted the postcard on aqua paper, black paper and then glued the panel to a blank card. It doesn't take long to make these postcards and you could do several at one time decorating them all differently.
