With Gratitude

July 10, 2008 at 3:15 am 9 comments

Saying thank you is easy to do with this great new set just release by Flourishes, called, well Thank You It contains a panel of thankful phrases and two sentiments done in beautiful calligraphy.  Along with those stamps are two elegant tulip images.  This card started with SU’s basic grey card stock.  A piece of pink paper from the Basic Grey Sultry line was stamped with the tulip image in grey.  I started the main image by stamping the tulip on a white panel, then masking just the blossom using Eclipse masking tape – which is one the the best products around if you do any kind of masking!.  Once the mask was in place, I stamped the word panel over it in grey.  Then I set out to color the flower.  I used Twinkling H2O’s – Pink Azelea, Sunflower and Moss Green – all from the Mini pot collection #1251.  The photo never shows the pretty shimmery look of the twinks – but IRL the colors just pop!  Here is a look at the close up, the twinkling H2O’s that were used and what the rest of the stamp set looks like.



Thanks for stopping by – happy stamping!
