Thank You Card

Hello everyone, and welcome back!! I have a sweet and simple thank you card to share with you for Studio Katia!!

I always start by gathering up all the stamps and dies I think I will use:


I knew I wanted to use the Stitched Notebook Set, that you can see already die cut on the bottom right.  And I also knew I wanted to use the Teacher's Apple stamp set, especially for the pencil image!!


For the sentiment, I chose to use the super sweet Mini Thank You set.  FYI: this is a free with purchase stamp right now but will be available for sale in March!!


I used my Winsor and Newton Promarkers to colour the pencil.  In this case, I wanted it to look more like a pen so I coloured the "eraser" portion the same as the body.  Because I am using a light blue base, I added a bit of colour to the strip across the top.


Now here is where I got fancy!!  Embossing paste!! What??!!  I never use this stuff, and I'm not sure why!  I used a diagonal stripe stencil and applied the paste over top, in a messy way.  And because the layer was thin, it dried super fast!!


To finish things off, I added a ink blob just below the thank you using the awesome Brush Strokes stamp set.  I tied a very thin piece of thread around the top of the notebook die and adhered the "pen" so it looked like it wrote the sentiment.  I also added some sequins from the Crystal Clear Sequin Fusion mix.


Thank you for visiting today!!  Have a great week!!
