Thank You Cards

Published September 30, 2013 by isisimaginings

Happy Monday blog visitors.  I made these cards a few weeks ago to send to Wendy Vecchi & Carol Quance to say thank you for my recent wins of Wendy’s stencils & the set of Lin Brown stamps on Carol’s blog.

For Wendy’s card I made a simple background with distress inks, then used her Archival inks –  Geranium, Orange Blossom, Fern Green & Potting Soil – through her layered tree stencil & for the stamping of the grass & falling leaves – they’re Martha Stewart stamps.  The Tim Holtz bird stamp & the Memory Box die cut birds completed the card.


I used a piece of canvas from an A4 pad as my substrate for Carol’s card.  I painted it with Nougat fresco paint, stamped the crackle with Chocolate Pudding (I think, could have been Mocha Mousse) then stamped the leaves with a mix of Tinned Peas & Hey Pesto.  Following Lin’s instructions, I stamped the flowers & leaves onto black card, leaving a border when I cut them out & stamping a PaperArtsy script stamp on the flowers.  I added dots of white liquid pearls to the centres.  I can’t remember exactly what fresco paints I used on the flowers.  I think it was Nougat, Ice Blue & a tiny amount of Inky Pool.


That’s it, I’m delighted to say that Carol liked her card & I hope Wendy did too.  I’m working on a journal page & a couple of cards right now, so I might be back later……
