Thanks for everything you do



Distress inked panel with water applied with a mini blending tool through the Tim Holtz Splatters layering stencil for the background. Thanks is a die cut and the small words are from a Winnie and Walter stamp set, they are so handy as each word is separate so you can create a multitude of sayings

Distress Marker Watercolor



Flowers (Stampendous Daisy Thanks set) heat embossed in white on Tim Holtz water-colour paper then coloured with Distress Markers and blended with a water pen. Fussy cut and mounted with foam dots on SSS burnt orange card stock, the greeting inside stamped with the coodinating SSS burnt orange ink.

This one came together in stages.

The background is Distress Inks blended on 110lb paper. Then using a mini blending tool and clean sponge, water lightly applied through stencil. I made a bunch(40!) of assorted card starts with distress inks and stencils on a recent road trip while my husband drove.

The flowers were cut from vellum using the Penny Black Field of Dreams die. I then painted them with Distress Paint and popped them up with Kool tak clear foam. The greeting is from Simon Says Stamp handwritten greetings set

I then used dimensional adhesive to pop up the who;e panel on the black card base

Finished up my Sympathy Card orders

Hummingbird #2



On the last card I had added the flower last as the hummingbird seemed to need one. I posted on Stampnation to get some feedback on whether the card was better before or after I added the flower. So I wanted to try again and I utilized Virginia’s idea of adding some black and moving it off centre. I also planned on the flowers as a focal point instead of an afterthought. It’s funny how it totally changes the card and yet I like both of them. What do you think?

Happy Anniversary Rebecca and Byron!
