Thinking of you

Hello all you craft lovers!
Today I have a card to show you that I made for a friend.
I wanted to let her know she is always in my thoughts and prayers.
I started with a piece of water color paper and an acrylic block.
Using a few water color crayons, I scribbled on the acrylic
block and spritzed it with a bit of water.
Then I laid the paper onto the block to soak up the color.
I have seen this technique done before and I've tried it
a number of times and I'm never very happy with the results,
but this time, I really did love it.
I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment onto the water 
color piece using my Misti tool.
I started out stamping it with yellow, hoping that it would show
up on the pink, but it didn't work and I ended up stamping over
it with a slate gray ink.
I adhered it to a bright yellow card base and added a white
piece of card stock inside.
On the inside the yellow worked much better.
I left room so I could write a message to my friend.
When I was at Ikea, I picked up this hook to send her.
She had gotten one when we had gone to Ikea a few weeks
ago when I was visiting and I know she wishes she had
picked up another, so I sent this along with the card.
I'm hoping it brings a smile to her face.
Now I'm wishing I would have picked up a couple for
my craft room.  Oh well, I'll just have to make another
trip to Ikea.  I just wish there was one close to me.
Another excuse to go visit I guess.

Thanks for stopping by today,
hope you'll stop by again soon.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
