Hello Journey friends,
Today (and in the next few days), I'll be sharing cards with the "Thank You" theme. I find at this time of year, I need cards that I can send out to friends and family to say Thank You for the many lovely gifts I received over the holidays. Do you like to send thank you cards after the holidays?
I wanted to create some cards that could be mass produced and created quickly but still retain a sense of beauty and artsy characteristics...Soo here's the first card I created:
I started out with a base of Whip Cream cardstock. I stamped the burlap print using Pumpkin Bread ink and overstamped the Dhalia Burst image on top with the Blue Lagoon ink. I then used some reinkers (Blue Lagoon and Butter Cream) with some Blending Solution and a thin brush. I love the look of the coloring over the stamped background- it kind-of reminds me of translucent vellum laying over the top. After coloring the images, I stamped the Thank You sentiment onto Oatmeal Cookie ink banner then rolled the edges and cut the ends...Popped that up onto the page and VOILA!
Mounting this stamped panel onto a Cocoa Powder card base finished this card up. I suppose adding a bit of splatter from Gold or Copper silk would put this card over the top, but I had restraint this time. ;)
