ABC T for Thank You

This time we are challenging you to make something to say Thank You at ABC.

This was perfect timing for me as I have a friend who keeps sending me little treats and is well overdue for a thank you.

We are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and also by Lili of The Valley.

ABC T Thank You

I have gone down a very minimalist route for this one, which I actually found very pleasing as it puts the focus on the lovely image more than on the card itself. I printed Zoe Spring which is a Paper Shelter image onto white hammered cardstock. Her skin and hair was coloured with copics, but the rest of her I coloured with my prismacolour pencils.ABC T Image

The matting layer and layered arches punched strip were from a large pad of Bazzil Basics cardstock and the sentiment I printed out onto the hammered card. I did this after I had coloured her in. If you are going to do this I recommend doing all the printing before colouring as I was really concerned the printer would jam or something would go wrong and all the colouring would be wasted.

Lastly I coloured a row of stitches around the edge of the top layer to bring the lime colour into the rest of the card.

This is a perfect card for the UK postal system where they charge considerably more for something that might way less but be slightly thicker than something else!
