Hi Crafty Friends
I was asked by a club member if we could make a thank you card, and as I will be needing some thank you cards for my team at work, I thought it would be a good plan to get some done early.
I thought we'd have a bit of an experimental week, using inks and stencils. I need a lot more practice at this myself, but it's good fun trying out different effects. I just created two simple layouts so people could concentrate on making their own background papers.
I love this sentiment die - I think its Spellbinders (or possibly Sue Wilson); the stars are of course 'cheap as chips ...'
On this next one I kept the background quite plain, and inked and stencilled the stars while they were still in the dies, which gave them a border. I liked the effect it gave.
I did add some Tim Holtz mica spray which looks quite pretty in real life, but doesn't show up here.
