JAI 251 Just add thank you

Hello there,
this week was MUCH better than last week something for which I am very thankful for. It was nice to finally feel as though we had some routine back in the house and even better tomorrow I get to spend the day at the SU! party time event. Yippee! But first let me tell you about this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week Patrice has given us the great challenge to Just Add Thank You. This is the chance to build up your thank you stash. So when you need one you'll be ready to go!

I decided to go gender neutral and with lots of colour and texture.

This is about as clean and simple as I get! I love the texture from the water colour paper, and accented with the stitching and embossed sentiment I reckon it stands up on its own. I discovered after some experimentation that to get the best water colour effect I had to wet the paper first then add the ink (ink refill on acetate with paintbrush). My experimental versions will not go astray as the kids snaffled them up straight away to save for their crafty projects.

Hope you can join us this week - and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT for inspiring "thank you" projects.
