Many Thanks Card
Today’s card uses one my favorite layouts used by Gina K of Gina K Designs. You can see her use it in this video. I also used the same technique she uses in the video to color the flowers called thumping.
I love the background paper on this one. The tone-on-tone burgundy is very classic. These papers come from the June 2011 Personal Shopper Kit from Paper Wishes. For the image I used Various Verses from Gina K. Design’s Various Verses set. I used Marvy markers in burgundy and green to color the flowers and leaves and then I thumped on top with a brown marker. Thumping is basically where you take a marker and just bounce the tip of the marker randomly on a bold image. It adds great texture.
The sentiment also comes from the same stamp set. I added some beautiful satin ribbon in that same deep burgundy color and three copper brads along the bottom. Another successful card using all materials from my stash.
Total purchase tally for Week 9: $0.
