Thank You cards for staff at an Art dorm

I just wanted to quickly share the fronts of these thank you cards I made for my staff. We run a creative and performing arts dorm so I figured a fun and artsy card would be appropriate. Enjoy!
This was a fairly simple card to make and allowed me to use some of my watercolor paper scraps. First I stamped a whole bunch of butterfly/moths on scrap squares using the watercolor stamping technique. I aged the edges with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and then tore the edges off. Then I put some Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the craft mat and got it super wet with my mister. Then I drug the torn edges through and dried with my heat tool to get the darker effect. I attached it with foam tape.

The right hand side was just a stamp from Tim Holtz and then I used the "splatters" stencil to dab in some cool color blobs on the side. Nice and simple, but fun.

    1. Well it's a slight over-simplification, but it's a place where students sleep but also engage in creative and performing arts while at Cornell. Check it out:
