Birds in the Thistle sketch 48
Today's post is a thank you card I'll send to my Dad and Step mom. My son visited them this week during his spring break and I know they spoiled him rotten while he was there.
So, don't you just love this stamp image? It's a new one that I got called Thistle Garden by Leigh Hannon from Impression Obsession. I think I'll have a ton of fun playing with this one in different colors and shapes. The stamp is actually horizontal, but I stamped it, colored it and then cut it to become vertical to meet the sketch challenge I was trying to do. I love, love, love the birds and had fun with the colors. The green card base is certainly celery and so is the wide twill ribbon. The mat is bermuda blue. The image was stamped on PTI white and the scallop edge was punched out of whisper white. The sentiment is from, you guessed it, teeny tiny wishes - a very versatile set since the sentiments are nice and small to add to just about any project.
If I have time, I hope to make a few more of these to send to the school fundraising auction later in April. I hope to have a few boxed sets of cards to donate and this general image should be good for that. Maybe I'll even put some out on Etsy!
