Hello Note Cards by Melissa

Hello there! Melissa stopping in today with a set of note cards made using some Aqua Huez. Nowadays with emails and texting, we kind of got lost in technology but there is something about receiving a handmade card in the mail that still triggers a sense of warmth, love and a real "thinking of you" feeling. So today, I will show you how to make a really simple card that you can send to someone just to say hello and let them know you were thinking of them! :)  

These are the Shimmerz Aqua Huez that I used:

~ Hottie Pink                         ~ Purplicious
~ Piglet                                  ~ Blue Moon
~ Crazy Daisy                        ~ Perfectly Purple

To get started, I die cut a scallop panel of water color paper to fit inside my note card. I then added a little of the Hottie Pink to the center left of my panel simply using a water brush. The more water you use the lighter color and the less water, the darker the color.

I then added some of the Piglet Aqua Huez right next to the first color, lightly blending together.

I then added some of the Crazy Daisy Aqua Huez to the panel.

Next, for some added contrast, I added some more of the Hottie Pink to my brush and lightly tapped the brush over the card to add some splatter to it.

Lastly, decorate with some twine, pearls and a die cut hello.

For the purple note card, I used the Purplicious, Perfectly Purple and Blue Moon Aqua Huez the same exact way. This one I decorated with some twine and sequins.

These are so simple yet make a big impact with the lovely colors. They would also be great as a Thank You card, Birthday or Thinking of You card. The possibilities are endless! Give Aqua Huez a try! They are an amazing product!! ;)

And don't forget, when placing your order, don't forget to add my name, Melissa B, to the "Notes to Merchant" section of your PayPal checkout! You will receive a Free Shimmerz Product with your order!!

Hope you have a wonderful day!
