Thank You Cards

Thanks | My Favorite Things Harmonious Hibiscus

Hi there, I hope you’re having a nice day and are keeping safe and healthy!

Today I have a card that almost didn’t turn into a card. Last weekend, I played with different color combinations that included the new Crackling Campfire Distress Oxide ink and I didn’t quite achieve the contrast I was hoping for at the top of this card, so I set the panel aside. But after a week of slowly forgetting what my expectations had been, I realized that I liked it much more than I did last week 🙂

Hello, I hope your day is going well!

I have another monochrome card today, this one featuring the Poppies Background from Simon Says Stamp.  I’ve never Copic-colored on colored cardstock before so the result is not quite what I imagined, but I like it anyway!
