Heartfelt Thanks has been AGES since I pulled out this set to use! I did a big Stamp Camp on it when it first appeared in the catalog...I think I burned myself out using it. But when I needed a floral image for my Technique class last week, the set caught my eye (besides it is one of the small collection of stamps I have that didn't retire!)

It is a pretty set and I like the two step stamping. The Technique we did was rubber band brayer for the background. My classes I try to break into a simple technique, a medium type technique and a more challenging technique. The was the simple category, yet it gives a lot of impact to a background! I don't know why I don't use it more often! This card I used two brayers with two different colors of ink...Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery. The flowers I used markers in order to color the stem separately than the flower. Finally, I knotted the ribbon before adhering it to the back.

Oops...I photographed this before I added the greeting (right next to the stems). I used Thank You from Warm Words.

Sets: Heartfelt Thanks
C/S: Apricot Appeal, Ruby Red, Whisper White
Inks: Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Ruby Red
Other: 5/8 Celery Grosgrain ribbon
