Note of thanks

Todays card is brought to you by a mix of the techniques we've been learning over the past few days with the Stretch your Stamps online card class. I was out of town for a couple days so I wasn't able to play much!! Had fun with this card tho!!


I really wanted to use the stamped words in an image. So I decided to to do the that but in a different way. I die cut the feather out, then on a scrap piece of white paper I traced out the feather image so I knew where I would have to stamp over. Once done stamping the sentiment repeatedly I adhered it in behind my die cut feather. For the other 2 feathers I die cut them out and heat embossed them. And for some added detail I went in a coloured them with the very limited amount of distress markers I had. I was going to use colouring markers for it but I wanted a more softer look. So once I was done colouring I misted the paper to have the distress ink do its magic, then added some white twine to tie them together!! I added the Thank you sentiment with the same embossing powder I used for the feathers. Once I had that card front adhered to the white panel I decided to do add the black piece on the back. I took a border stamp and clear embossed the image on it so it was subtle but still there!!

And thats my card for the day!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
