Thank You

Here's a lil something I made last's not for any challenge blogs...just me playing around with the stuff I have at hand...the lil music note at the top left of the card was made with photo turns, music note PP, glossy accents and a bit of twine.

The copper background was a black piece of black cardstock stamped (using white acrylic paint) with an All Night Media flourishes stamps and embossed using some stamp-it embossing powder in copper. I don't own a heat gun, so I tried a lil something using my cooking utensils..a frying pan! (until I get a heat gun, this would prob substitute that for now *lol*) but on low heat of can try it too..!

Then, using the clear stamps, I used my MM stamp for the thank you sentiment. I first heat embossed using gold embossing powder and then only did I use distress inks over it. As the sentiment was not clear enough, I re-stamped the sentiment using Staz-On in black.

Materials Used :

Black Cardstock
Stamp-It Embossing Powder (Copper)
Quickutz Butterfly Die
Music Notes PP
7 Gypsies Photo Turns
Glossy Accents
White Acrylic Paint
All Night Media Stamp
Ranger distress Inks
Kaisercraft Flowers
Moof Brad
We R Memory Keepers PP
EK Success Puncher
