Thank you

This should have been a quick card to make, but after creating the main stamped and embossed panel I ummed and ahed for days trying to decide on a layout. I'm still not happy with it, but wanted to share it with you since I like the colours and the main panel. It's the first time I've tried one of these "Stamp and Emboss" sets from Sizzix, and I loved playing with it! The stamping is done using a clear embossing ink-pad and embossing enamel to create a resist for the inking. Plenty of distress ink is added using my favourite method of rubbing with pieces of cut 'n' dry foam, then the panel is spritzed with a mist of water to get the droplets.

Oh that reminds me, I got this fabulous little spritzer bottle from Sainsbury's which is just perfect for spritzing! It was in that section that sells empty cosmetics containers for flights. It is soo much easier to use than those misting pens, although if you had a bunch of them I guess they'd take up a lot more room on your desk...

...where was I? Oh I'd better show you the card before I forget :-)
