Thank You So Much!

Happy Mother's Day!  I am popping in with a fun and quick card set I made for this week' Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge.  I actually need several Thank You cards.  My daughter graduated from Nursing School this week.  Her pinning ceremony was Thursday followed by graduation on Saturday.  It has been a busy three days with family in town.  We are all so very proud of her.  Anyway, she has a few Thank You cards she needs to send out.   

I kept them pretty simple.  The new Paper Clippings Thank You set made it really easy since it covers most of the card front. I started with watercolor paper, the stamp set, and my MISTI.  I dry stamped the first card  in autumn rose a few times, then wet stamped with worn lipstick and abandon coral.

For the second card, I kept the MISTI set up the same and dry stamped Bright Buttercup several times followed with water stamping of Honey distressed ink.  

For the third card, I dry stamped Simply Chartreuse several times followed with water stamping of olive distressed ink.

For the last card, I started with Blueberry Sky dry 
stamped  several times followed with water stamping of Broken China distressed ink.    I added some splatters to all four cards using a water brush and some ink.  I did add some corner accent stamping using the corner image in the new Make It Market Don't Forget to Write set.  I used berry sorbet, enchanted evening, simply chartreuse, and summer sunrise for card bases.  I added a narrow strip of true black on the left side of each card.  I finished all of the cards with a few iridescent sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
