Watch how simple it is to create this beautiful sunset with nothing more than a pad of ink and a sponge dauber!
In this tutorial, I explain my creative process in creating this Thank You card card from a simple card sketch. You will find the instructions, supply list and a video below.
I am using sketch 22 from my 30 Card Sketches with Examples ebook. And features the Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away product suite.
