Thoughtful and a Winner


Today i'm sharing a vintage/fall like card! I actually stamped and colored this image last year just after Christmas when i received the last of the distress markers i was missing. Its been hanging out on my desk and finally thought it was time to use it!!! I am entering this in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.

I die cut the image with a frame die and then inked the edges. Next i pulled out a panel of watercolor paper and placed a stencil over it. With a fine tip distress marker i traced the stencil. Then i started inking the edges with different distress inks, just working the ink toward the center. It covered up more of the stencil then i planned, but i still like it!!

I stamped the sentiment and added the colored image with foam tape. But i think it still needed it something, i so first pulled out a tiny brown cloths pin. Then i found some fabric that i had dyed with tea at some point. I die cut some small hearts and then added a little more ink to them. I added them to the colored panel with the cloths pin.


And now for my winner from my giveaway last week. I used to pick the winner:
