Thanks


Here's a card I made recently that uses a technique of water stamping on distress ink. I used some Mermaid Lagoon distress ink, sponging it on a white piece of cardstock. I used some Fabulous Flowers stamps, spritzing them with water and stamped them onto the inked panel and let it dry. I added some contrast with black and white, adding some embossing on the lower panel and a punched border for the sentiment. Now I need more of those new distress ink colors so I can make more thank-you cards! I'm very pleased with the way this turned out!

I'm sharing this over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is Thanksgiving/Thanks.

Have a wonderful Friday and thanks for dropping by!

Gorgeous look with this technique. I also love that embossing on the bottom and the black separates the both portions nicely. I wore a shirt yesterday that was almost that same exact color. Hoping you have a wonderful day.
