A note to say thanks

Hello! Got a bit of time today to put together this card for Less is More and Just us Girls.

Less is More color theme this week is to use Neutrals. I chose to use some rustic white cardstock and gray. Just us Girls word week is Thank you.

Thanks is cut out using the Thanks die from WPlus9. I cut it out again using gray cardstock and inlaid it into the card base. I even had to cut it again to get the little bits and pieces for in between the loopty loops.

Ranger distress ink in pumice stone is dabbed onto my craft sheet and then spritzed with water. I picked up a bit with a paint brush and splattered it over the card. Next I added some black that was spritzed with the spritzing tool. You might need to click on the picture to see this up close.

Hind sight is always 20/20 and if I did this again, I would stamp the sentiment after adding the splatters. A couple of those drops made the ink smear a bit in the sentiment. It's stamped in steel gray from MFT.

Lastly, I added some clear dew drops to act as water to finish this off. That's it for today. Thanks for stopping in.
