A Colourful Thanks

Hiiii!! Today, I wanted to share another card using the Say What?! stamp set. You know, this set is turning to be one of my top favourites and I can't wait to use it again for a different time.

I wanted to colour in these speech bubbles but I didn't feel like colouring them individually. Instead, I've stamped them out into a background pattern by white embossing them. When that's that, I've literally just added pink, yellow and orange and not being too careful about it. 

The only thing I kept in mind was to add some darker shades. I find that by adding dark shades, you get a more "textured" look and you can highlight the speech bubbles even more clearly than if you just give it a light wash of colour. Just remember to let the layers dry first before adding more colours. 

Instead of using a black and bold sentiment like I would usually do, I've decided to stamp out Thank You using the Lettering Alphas stamp set on a vellum piece. I thought this gives a more softer look. I've just drawn out a "cloud shape" around it and cut it out to match some of the speech bubble.
