Up Close Look at Cards 1 and 2

To remind you, these two cards were cut from the 10 card workshop in Wishes.  The paper is the same but, as you can see, the cards have a completely different feel from each other.

The "Thanks" focal corners were created by using our 1.25" circle rounder.  I put just the corner into the cutter to create the concave look.  The flowers I stamped in Creme Brulee and then colored in with our watercolor pencils (Sorbet and Orange).  I then took some water and a paint brush and lightly blended the inks together.  I had really wanted to use our new alcohol markers, but I can't even order them until tomorrow - just like you.  I had originally colored and cut out another flower to mount above the word "thanks" but thought otherwise once I mounted the word.

The card needed something else which is why I added the Baker's Twine.  It adds so much to the card.  Oh, if you think the pollen looks shiny, you'd be right.  I used Liquid Glass dots on them to bring them out.

For the second card,
No stamping done on this card, just like my July workshop. :)  The sentiment is from the Clementine Complements which is canvas.  The sentiment is mounted.  The bottom right corner and edge of the card has been sanded slightly to add visual interest.  Those two buttons are Twilight and topped with Creme Brulee Baker's Twine knot (and attached with Liquid Glass).
