A Series of Thank You...

Between having a baby this Spring and the end of school, I've needed a great deal of thank you notes.  Now seeing as I have an infant...the answer is yes, it would have been much easier to send ones from a box or purchased from the store however, it's absolutely against every fiber in my being to spend $4 on a store card when the ones I make are infinitely more meaningful, not to mention prettier!  But with my lack of time I had to find cards that were easy and very quick to pull together.  Well, who better to go to than the amazing Jennifer McGuire for a quick and easy yet beautiful card!?  I was inspired by this card. 

I have this gorgeous stamp set from Mama Elephant and took full use of it to create a great many cards!  I'll show you one today.
I used my Distress Ink Markers to color up the single line of filigree design and stamped onto high quality water color paper.  One I had the color laid down, I generously spritzed the paper with water mixed with Perfect Pearls pigment powder.  It allowed the Distress Ink to bleed and mix together in a lovely way and it lends the entire paper a very subtle sparkle - which unfortunately is impossible to capture in a photo.  I then used a Hero Arts sentiment set for the sentiment which was inked with black pigment ink and heat set with black embossing powder.  I used a Martha Stewart die to punch the hearts out of black cardstock and then coated them with Glossy Accents.

I'll be back soon with another Thank You card!

Hope you're keeping cool!

Crafty Hugs!
