Thanks For Your Thoughtfulness

Happy Wednesday!!!!  Wanda here today to share a card using the new Thanks die and a stamp from the new Thanks Cuddlers set of stamps.  

For the background a piece of Ranger manila cardstock was cut to 4" x 6 1/8".  Color was added with Distress Inks (picked raspberries, seedless preserves. spiced marmalade) - I used the sprays but the inks or stains would work just fine. This was dried and then crackle paste was spread over the piece using a palette knife and allowed to mostly air dry.  The Distress Ink bleeds up through the paste giving wonderful color as the paste dries.  I did grab the heat tool a few times and hit it lightly in my desire to have it dry "now" but then tried to keep myself busy with the other parts of the card.  Once the paste was completely dry I sponged on some Distress brushed corduroy, mostly around the edges, and added some drips of brushed corduroy.  I decided it needed some yellow and sponged on some mustard seed.  The leaves (Dylusions) are stenciled with Distress mowed lawn.  And finally I added some Archival Ink magenta hue on the edges.  I die cut thanks first form the magenta color of Core'dinations.  It cut FABULOUSLY!!!!  These are Nice!!!!  Then I cut it from the yellow, then thought white might be better so cut a white one and finally, as you can see, I used all three colors together.  For your thoughtfulness, was stamped onto a scrap with Archival Ink magenta hue, torn out using a straight edge to tear against, and Distress ink (mustard seed, picked raspberry) added to the piece.  The butterfly (Memory Box) is cut from yellow and magenta Core'dinations.  On the yellow butterfly there is magenta hue ink sponge along the outside edges and a very light brushing of Treasure Gold here and there added to catch the light as you move the card.  The butterfly body/antenna are sponged with jet black Archival.
