Thank you cards

Hello again.  I've enjoyed a lovely weekend's crafting, and want to share a couple of thank you cards I've made using the Claritystamp garden heart, "kind hearts" verse and a sentiment from the word chains, along with the abstract squares and trellis stencils.

I used my stencil brushes to add colour through the abstract squares stencil.

 
 
 
Ready for the stamping.
 
 
I masked off each square in turn using post-its and stamped sections of the garden heart through the apertures. 
 
 
I wanted to add each line of the sentiment separately, so used post-its again to cover up the other lines of the verse when inking up the stamp.
 
 
All that was left to do was to colour in the design using my spectrum noir pencils.
 
 
I then made a smaller tag card with the same theme.  The only thing I did differently was to add a little embossing paste through the trellis stencil as well.
 
 
The finished cards.
 
 
I really enjoyed making these cards.  I hope you like them too.  Till next time.  Xxx
