Thank You... Thank You... Thank You
As you can see, I did manage to find a little crafting time this afternoon - should have been getting on with the laundry, but hey ! I think I've got my priorities right.... heee....heee.. !
One of the beautiful birthday cards that was awaiting me when I arrived home contained this truly delightful stamp (thank you so much Junie, I adore it). I couldn't wait to get her inky and this is the result. The Simply Less is More Challenge this week is to create a one layer card with the theme of 'off the edge' so my 'Thank You' card fits perfectly into this challenge. I hope the recipient likes it too !
The stamp is 'Lantern Rin' by Sparkle Creations (Rubber Stamps) and this is the first of their stamps I've used. It is lovely thick red rubber and I got a nice sharp and clear image from it stamping with Memento Ink, placing it just over the edge of the card as I stamped it so she looks like she's just leaning into the card slightly to say "Thank You". I stamped the sentiments from a set by Hero Arts using the red part of a Big and Juicy ink pad. To tie the whole thing together, I coloured just the lantern in red using Copics, leaving the rest of the image as a lineart drawing for more impact.
Thanks so much for dropping by today to see my first creation since returning from my holiday.
