Thank You | Thank You a la Joni

Hello there everyone!  It's Shay again back with another thank you card.  I sort of channeled my inner Joni on this one. :-)  Joni makes the most beautiful backgrounds and did a stellar job with creating floral backgrounds this past release as seen HERE.

Ever want just "thank" rather than "thanks"?  Me too!  I played with the "thanks" from The Big, the Bold and You to create "thank" that I matched up with the "you" also from The Big, the Bold and You.  Below you can see how I used some handy tape to cover up the "s" so that it would not ink up.  Simply peel off the tape before stamping (you don't know how many times I have to remind myself to remove the tape before I stamp).  As you can see it stamped out perfectly!  So love that.

I wanted a fun variegated look so I stamped "thank" in peacock feathers and salty ocean Distress Inks (shown above) and "you" in festive berry and worn lipstick on a panel of watercolor paper.  Then I painted over the words with a waterbrush that I dipped in Studio Calico's Mister Huey's Calico Shine.  You are not be able to see it in the picture but in real life there is a pretty shimmer on the words.

With the flowers from The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom I created flowers in spun sugar and worn lipstick.  The centers were stamped in festive berries using one of the solid circles from Scenery: Big Bang Confetti.  The leaves are stamped in peacock feathers and are also from The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom.  To fill in some of the white spaces I stamped in the large outline circle from Scenery: Big Bang Confetti in salty ocean and sequins fit perfectly inside those open circles.  

The edges of the panel are lightly inked and adhered with dimensional adhesive to a navy cardstock base with a small scalloped patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper Flea Market 6x6 paper pad die cut using the Femme Frames by Mama Elephant.
