Thank you

Got messy making a few thank you cards.

I was inspired by this mood board so grabbed Distress Ink Pads and leaves from outside.

I spread the ink on my mat and spritzed with water. Then I dragged my white paper through and around until the background was done. I used the leaves for stamps by inking the back side and pressing down. I like the way the veins look. I matted with matching cardstock before applying to a kraft card base.

I finished with my sentiment and some twine.

I love the way these came out!

Adding these to Simonssays Wednesday challenge.
