Floral Bird Arch

This is Floral Bird Arch from KLM Digital Stamps. I thought it would make the perfect thank you card.

I recently the nicest gift from Sandra V. She sent a sweet little stuffed toy to our little one for her birthday. It was such a wonderful surprise. So, I wanted to make a very special card to show her how appreciative I am to her. 

 I created a 6x6 card using paper from my stash. I colored the floral wreath with the following Copics:

  • Bird - RV10, RV11 and RV13
  • Yellow flowers - Y06, Y08, and Y13
  • Purple flower - V12, V17, and V20
  • Pink flower - R20, R21, and R30
  • Leaves - G02, and G05

I used sparkle ink over the top of the flowers to add a bit of shimmer

The thank you sentiment came with this beautiful stamp. I did use a bit of green alcohol ink to add a bit of pop to the sentiment. I wanted to keep the card a bit simpler so that the wreath would stand out. This is such a pretty, pretty stamp. 

I created a card using pencils colored on craft too. For this card, I used the following Prismacolor pencils:

Bird - clouded blue, blue lake, blue slate, and  perwinkle with a touch of spanish orhange for the bleak. 

  • Leaves - light green, aquamarine, and cobalt turquoise
  • Flower pink - deco pink, deco peach , and neon pink
  • Flower Purple -parma violet, lilac, and black cherry
  • Flower yellow - jasmine, light yellow, and cream
I used a pale lilac to color around the edge of the arch. I colored on craft paper, which I matted with a black card stock underneath.

Whether you use markers or pencils - you can make a beautiful thank you card.
