you are the best

Today's thank you card is for this week's Tuesday Trigger: Squares to Cherish challenge over on the Moxie Fab World blog, inspired by the colors in the pictured quilt, below. These were the first three colors of distress stain that I'd purchased, just within the last couple of weeks too. Strange coincidence, eh?! They come in bottles with dauber applicators, so I just daubed some of each color on the stamp, spritzed it with water, and inked the card stock, then mounted and popped up the matted piece. Easy peasy!

A quick post tonight as it's after 10 p.m. and I'm sleepy. Thanx for stopping in, and I'll catch you later!

stamps: Hero Arts' Antique Brocade, Technique Tuesday's AE Smooch; paper: American Crafts' textured white and Paper Reflections' black card stocks; inks: Ranger's Distress Stain in broken china, dusty concord, and peeled paint
