5- Thank you cards

Sunday May 6, 2018
Well few weeks ago.. or could of been earlier.. I have been so busy making cards, I lose track of time. But I said I was desperate need of Thank you cards. Well I decided to do the same technique and create 5 cards. I started by using Ranger inks on a block and sprits with water and apply to the water color paper.. I kept adding to each paper till I got the look I liked. I then dried and used Perfect Pearls watered down and flicked over the cards. Dried again then used Paper Trey ink - Thank you and repeated stamping till I got  nice dark lettering. I did same to all of the cards. I then mounted all but one on black card stock. The other one was on a dark gray card stock.. So now I am doing pretty good on my needed thank you cards.. these were so easy and I think pretty. Just a note.. after I got this post ready and the next day as I was looking at them again.. I went on each one and stamped other words.. for the singers I stamped "you rock" for the speaker I stamped "you inspire me" and others "you're awesome"    Looking at just the thank you it didn't look personal enough and these were to friends at our Ladies church retreat.
