Thoughtful

Morning.  Meet today's card.
The CAS challenge at Splitcoast was to create a Thank-You card so here is what I came up with.

I inked the Pop Pop Poppy from Penny Black by using my watercolour crayons.
First, I wet the stamp with water and a paint brush then I colour directly onto the stamp with the crayons.  By adding the water, it helps the colours blend together when stamping.
Next, I stamped the sentiment from PTI with black Memento ink and added some paint splatters.
My card needed something more so I drew in a black-line border with a fine tip marker.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

City Crafter- FOCUS ON FLOWERS

Cards in Envy- WHEN NATURE CALLS

Craft Your Passion- ANYTHING GOES

Monday Mood Board- PHOTO INSPIRED
(tulip inspired)

Use Your Stuff- SUNSHINE


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.  I appreciate it so very much!

Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black, PTI/ Memento bl ink/ Watercolor crayons/ paint brush/ Mini mister/ fine tip marker

Adding that black line to those wonderfully crayoned and stamped flowers was a great idea, Karen. I don't know how you got it so perfect.
