Created Byhand Challenge - Thanks



This weeks challenge on Created Byhand is to use the word Thanks or Thank You. Just in time I got my new stamps from Quietfire Design which included 4 different thank you stamps so I used one. This is the larger of 2 similar stamps and I love the little hearts that are in the letters. On this card after I stamped the word I used the Inkssential white pen to highlight those little hearts. The base layer was done with alcohol inks. Stamped fiddleheads along the bottom. Added the mulberry paper and stamped the word and the bird on it. Added holes in the upper left corner using the Tim Holtz ruler and an awl. Wrapped the piece in red string and tied on a heart charm, also from Quietfire Design. Added a sequin flower to the upper left corner... coated it with Matte Accents so it wasn't to shiny and added a punched 1/8" circle to the center.

I always love your art, you are just so talented. I wish I had the time to drop by more often but when I do get a chance it is as good as being in a candy store :)
