Simple Thank You Card

by Aga

Hello Everyone! It's Aga here and today I’m sharing a quick card using only a stamp set and watercolour markers.  I was recently travelling a lot and with a very limited luggage allowance I couldn't take all of my craft supplies with me. I needed to stick to a very minimum number of items and in the end it turned out, that I forgot to take some with me. For example my ink pads. Yikes!

Fortunately I had with me my Altenew stamps, Tombow’s Dual Brush Pens that I used for the collaboration blog hop the other day (there's still time to join in the fun, if you haven't already!) and a few spare “thank you” die cuts.

I challenged myself to create something using only those items and here’s what I came up with:

thank you 1

I stamped my flowers from Watercolor Wonders set to create a simple background. I used markers to colour stamps instead of traditional stamp ink and added a few drops of water for more watercolour look.

thank you 2

Hope you enjoy it! Thank you for stopping by today!

Well done!! This is just beautiful and certainly demonstrates that a crafter does not “need” everything :-)
