Thank You

I am so thankful for the wonderful Christmas I had - and hope that you were blessed as well!  So after so much receiving, it's only appropriate to share a thank you card with you.

I fell in love with these stamps from Crafter's Companion (Frou Frou Line - Love Letters). I just crazy about their vintage charm.  I stenciled the art nouveau design (from Dreamweavers) onto the green cardstock using Imagine Crafts Electric Purple Neon Ink - don't let the "neon" scare you - this ink is fantastic for remaining bright and true on dark cardstocks.   I embossed the gold foil paper with Crafter's Companion folder, and distressed it a bit with Staz On ink in Ganache.   I framed the image with a chipboard wreath from Creative Embellishments.

 I colored the stamped image with a mix of Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and their new  Blendable Pencils.  This was my first attempt with the pencils, so I have a bit of practicing to do... but they are really fun to play with!
