Thankful Anemones



I thought I'd start out Thanksgiving Week with a thank you card.

I love the gorgeous florals in WPlus9's Watercolored Anemones set, but I'm not the greatest with multi-step stamps.

The good news is there's a full stamped image that you can use as a guide.  I stamped the full image on kraft with white pigment ink.  Then, with the help of a MISTI, stamped the individual parts of the flower in color.



Such a pretty look!

The sentiment is from an old Studio Calico set.

Hope your week is off to a great start.  I'm looking forward to a short work week and a lot of pie!

  13. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Lovely card, Miriam! Not sure why I'm suddenly getting the Capcha & have to click squares. Is there a way to stop it?

  15. I have the hardest time with multi-step stamping, too! Nothing ever seems to line up, but I bet the MISTI helps tons. Hmmmm? Might have to add that to my wish list ;). Such a beautiful card! Gotta make a note to get back to stamping on kraft. So pretty!
