Thank You cards





Started this card by die-cutting the THANKS with Tim Holtz's Chip Block alphabet using thick card (a breakfast cereal box), then heat embossed it with black sparkle embossing powder.  I spaced the letters out on a scrap piece of paper, cut it to size then used this to create a rectangular mask.  This mask was then centred onto a piece of white paper and swirly stamps were stamped all around in black.  I highlighted some of the swirls with pink watercolour pencils and a black fineliner pen.  This was all then stuck together, and stuck onto a white card blank with a bit of dry embossing to create a border.

This card is being entered into the CAS-ual Fridays -Embossing challenge, and DYSU - Thank You challenge
