Water-colored Thank-You


This card began with a piece of white cardstock that I sponged with Distress inks. After the main panel was dry, I spritzed the Memory Box stamp with water and stamped it into the ink, giving it a white shadow. Once that was dry, I stamped the image in black, slightly moving it to the left of the shadow image. I die cut that panel along with the water-colored panel beneath it with a Gina Marie Designs stitched square die set, then added 2 white mini brads to the flower centers. The card base was a color-variegated cardstock and seemed to be a good color match to the distress inks. I added a snippet of die-cut white that was cut with a Lawn Fawn stitched hills die, then stamped a MFP sentiment. The card base was die cut with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle.

I just became aware of a brand new challenge called the PCC1 - Perfectly Created Chaos - which is to "Stamp it."

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is a good one!
