Many Thanks - A Single Layer Card with 100 Proof Press

Okay, so here's the deal. I really love this card. No. For reals. I don't know what it is, but I REALLY love this one. It makes me feel good. It makes me want to sit, and breath. Is that weird? I'm pretty sure that's weird. Oh, well. I'm pretty used to being weird. Just say'n.



Many Thanks


*sigh*

Cool, breezy day. Comfy sweater and a favorite pair of jeans. A rocking chair. Singing birds. Crisp air. The scent of Apple Crisp wafting in the air. Pumpkins tumbling from the garden.

*sigh*



Many Thanks (detail)


The challenge over at Less is More was to create a single layer card using ink. Well, I sorta use ink a lot, so I wanted to do something I don't usually do, so I did a bit of masking and then spritzed the text image, stamped in distress ink, with just a bit of water to make it run. Ummmmmmmmmm....yeah. I'm totally in love. Then I stamped the rocking chair image in the middle with StazOn in chocolate. {heart.} Both of those gorgeous stamps are from 100 Proof Press. The handwritten letter is just too awesome!!! As for that bow. It's some kind of corn husk type thing that came on a gift I received. I really love it! If I could find a roll of that stuff, I'd be thrilled! It has such amazing texture! The sentiment is a sticker from SRM Press. The perfect finish!
