Whether you need a thank you card or are sending out thank you cards for all those Christmas cards you got, any occasion is good to say thanks.

The card is for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: something new showcasing Simon Says Stamp products.
The Simon Says Stamp  Monday Challenge: start afresh,
and for the Less is More Challenge: ombre

I used the heart of flowers die and the painted thanks die, both from Simon Says Stamp and both came in today's mail..woot!
So new for sure ;-)

I diecut the heart from a cardpanel and mounted it with foamtape.
I diecut the thanks from black cardstock with doublesided adhesive on the back, so it becomes a sticker.
I painted a watercolorpaper panel with Ecoline (318) and faded it towards the bottom to get the ombre effect.
Mounted it all together and adhered it to the cardbase.

  7. Your watercolouring is absolutely superb Maaike with flawless blending of colour from light to dark. Fab ombré. The heart die is gorgeous too. Great design.
