I wanted to get some of the new releases from Sweet 'N Sassy stamps inky so, I made this card for my parents to let them know how much I value them and our time together. The sentiment, from Thoughtful Words, continues to the inside and reads (in full) "No words can describe how thankful I am for you."
The central image comes from the Through The Trees set. You can pre-order this set right now! I started by stamping the birch tree image on water color paper and then adding some sky and grass water colors. I framed the tree image with cardstock that I cut an oval out of and then added some stenciling. I sponged some and then added a bit more with a paint brush--it got kind of splotchy, which I think looks cool.
After stamping the sentiment, I added a bird (a heron, I think--of the great blue variety?) from the January Stamp of the month set, Scene Silhouettes: Wetlands. It's kind of an earthy card--I think my folks will love it!
Have yourself an inky kind of day :) TTFN, Jane
