A Touch of Thanks

This card is for the sketch challenge on SCS today. I used the flower from Touch of Nature (SU) and the sentiment from Sincere Salutations (SU).

The flowers were colored with water color pencils and heat embossed with clear embossing powder after I cut them out. The background was made by stamping the fern from the Touch of Nature set, on glossy card stock with River Rock and heat embossing it with clear. Then I sponged on some other colors.

This was the original flower I was going to use for this card. As you can see, it had a close encounter with my black Stazon ink pad. You might think that I dropped it on the ink pad or vice versa, but no, I actually took my lovely flower and started to rub it on the ink pad, thinking that I had pulled out the Versa Mark pad. I need more sleep.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Stamping!

Beautiful card! One of my favorite stamp sets. What a bummer with the image you dropped the stazon pad on! After all the time you took to watercolor so beautifully! ;-( Maybe you can salvage it?

I left you an ward on my blog today:

have a nice weekend!
