Good Day to Say Thanks!
Inspired by the Color My Heart Colors this week, I designed a TY card for my guy to send. He always asks if there is something appropriate in 'the store' for him to send out to family or colleagues. This time I needed to make one!
I started with Champagne CS and stamped the tree trunk from Huntington Workshop stamp set. I stamped the Good and Day. The I put in my brick pattern with Chocolate ink using a homemade stencil made from Artbooking.
I stamped the leaves in Chocolate and colored over them with Olive and a touch of Sorbet. Some of the leaves are stamped in Cranberry Pigment ink. I stamped the thank you (an old Studio G stamp) in Pacifica and then stamped over it in Archival Black to give it more depth and prominence.
I distressed the edges with scissors and inked it with Cocoa pigment ink. I layered it on top of some olive patterned paper from Ivy Lane; that is on top of an embossed piece of Sorbet CS. I used the CTMH Woodgrain folder and then rubbed my Chocolate stamp pad over the raised areas. My card base is Olive. I finished it off with a Baker's Twine Olive bow.
All CTMH from Katiescorner!
