MCAug/11 - Thank You

Our Guild needed a new look for our website and Jared, a relative of our president, offered his time to set it up for us. This is a small thank you for his generosity and kindness.

I stamped the upper (Quietfire Design) and lower (Flourishes "With Gratitude") thank you's with Perfect Medium on some medium weight paper, clear embossed and direct to paper with Distress - upper with Faded Jeans & Chipped Sapphire; lower with Shabby Shutters & Pine Needles, misted with water and dried, then ironed off the embossing.

The middle section is calligraphed with a pointed pen and a Nikko G nib, Sumi Ink, dried and color/shadowed with a pink colored pencil and an HB pencil and paper stump. Trimmed down and inked the edges with Marvy Matchables Rose Pink dye pad. Stamped the time pieces (Flourishes "Moments in Time" & CHF "Corner Timepiece") with Versafine Black Onyx. I distressed the edges with Tim's distresser. Adhered it all to a white card (4.25 x 5.5"w)

What a beautiful piece of work - so much thought gone into the techniques - Love It!

Thanks for joining us this week at Top Tip Tuesday and don't forget if you have a tip to share you could win another prize! Just add 'TIP' after your name when you link (your bit regarding ironing off the embossing could count as a tip with a little bit of 'Here's my Top Tip' editing???)
