Wonder Thanks

Hi y'all!  Happy Wednesday!  Today I've got a quick little card I made using Love's Flower and  a sentiment from Amazing Wishes.

A while back, I was playing around in my studio and I saw a stitched canvas rectangle on my desk and I wondered if I could stamp it and color it with watercolor wonder crayons.  Remember those?  I haven't used mine in years, but I was curious and decided to pull them out!  The flower is stamped with Vintage Photo Distress ink.  I heat set it with my heat gun to minimize any ink bleeding, then colored with the wonder crayons and blended with an aquapainter.  To my amazement, it worked!  {grin}

I added some vintage photo ink around the edges, then frayed the top and bottom and wrapped the sides with some pretty washi tape.  I wrapped the same washi tape around a square crumb cake rectangle, then stamped a couple of the flowers from Love's Flower as a background, leaving room for the Thank You sentiment from Amazing Wishes.  I had a little frame cut out from a QuicKutz Nesting Label already cut, so I just threw it behind my canvas and then finished off with some liquid pearl accents and a flatback pearl for my flower center.  Finished card size is 4.25" square.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a fabulous day!'
