Thank You Card - 2

A couple weeks ago I posted a very special Thank You card and here is another one.  I absolutely LOVE the beautiful and inspirational image sets that Mynn Kitchen has at



I saw a card that looked similar to this and I wish I could remember where I saw it or who did it, but I can't.  I lost the page before I could even read how it was done.  So I used a flower from the "Blossoming" digital stamp set from MHK Designs and the scripture from the "Look to the Light" stamp set from CTMH.  I used Distress Markers to color the center of the flower and to create the "splash" look (as I like to call it).  I had only seen that effect so I had to use my imagination as to how it was done.  I started out next to the flower making dots with the tip of the Distress Marker.....at first so close together it's hard to tell they are dots, and the farther out I went the farther apart the dots got.  I fell in love with that technique the moment I saw it.  And if I'm not doing it the same way, it's okay....I still love it.

    1. Thanks so much Mynn.....this is probably my favorite so far of the cards I made with your images.. It is using a technique I have never used and didn't have directions for...but I am so pleased with how it turned out. And your flower was just what I needed to do it :) Hugs...Janie
