Scarecrow Thank You Card

For this card I used Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6 x 6 paper pad with Bazzill London Fog.

To embellish the card, I used Shanna's sewing machine and did a straight stitch with an off white thread, Basic Grey Button, Wraphia from my stash, miscellaneous flower & twine.

The stamp sets I used are CTMH's A Little Thanks and CTMH's Fall Favorites - September's Stamp of the Month.

As most of you know, I have been living with my parents since the flood on May 28th. In June, their shower broke, so we had to shower in their trailer parked in the drive way or at my grandparent's apartment. 

At the beginning of August, their dryer broke and it took about 3 weeks to fix. So, one evening while Shanna was out of town, I went to her house to dry clothes. While my clothes were drying I made this card. 

I picked this card to do there so that I could use her copic markers, but when I got there and saw the Tim Holtz Distress Markers sitting out, I quickly changed my mind. This was my first time using them and I had fun.

I stamped my image with Momento Black Ink on Copic White paper. I coloured the image in with the distress markers. I then took Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink Pad and rubbed it over my image and the white space around it. 

I then crumpled my paper up to give it more of a worn look and voila!

Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Inks are made not to muddy each other but maintain their colour when mixed. That is why I was able to change the white background paper with the Antique Linen Ink Pad.

If you love this stamp set as much as I do, you can order it at our Charity Stamping Party on August 30th. We are placing the Close to My Heart order on September 1st so that we can purchase the September Stamp of the Month instead of August's Stamp of the Month.
