Thank You... Thank You... Thank You

Thank you for missing me and thank you for taking the time to tell me so !  I missed all of you too - 11 days with no internet access, how did I ever survive ? !!!

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.

The lantern is beautifully coloured, makes me think I would have like to see the little lady coloured too!

This is really cute - she looks like she's coming round the corner with her lantern to see what's going on outside - lovely idea for this challenge!
