I have so much to be Thankful for, so I decided to make a "Thank You" card today.   Let me explain how I made this card.  I was inspired by Dina's Mixed Media Tutorial found HERE.  It looked like so much fun that I had to try it.  I used only 2 acrylic colors:  turquoise and metallic Silver.   After adding the acrylics to the background, I stamped the sentiment, from the Thank You set, with Smokey Gray Versafine.  The tulip was stamped with Gray Flannel Memento Ink onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock and colored with Copic Cool Neutrals and Spruce.  I cut it out and layered if over the main panel.


I used some stencils and the So Distressed set for the background.  I started by inking Smokey Gray Versafine over the Stripes Stencil, then adding Tumbled Glass Ranger Distress Ink using the same Stripes stencil.  I just moved it over a bit.  I then stamped the splotchy distress image over the stripes using Smokey Gray Versafine again.  So easy.

Lastly, I added the sentiment "With Gratitude" to a horizontal strip and embellished it with two cut off pieces from an ornate die from Ironwork Accents (Spellbinders), and two little Ice Green Pearls (Kaisercraft).

That's it for me.
Here are the links to the two Copic Collections I used:

Thank you so much for dropping by.  I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving, and are enjoying your weekend!!

Happy stamping!!
