MS Walk

Next weekend I will be participating in the Rhode Island chapter's MS Walk. My step-sister was diagnosed with MS in her late 20s. My whole family will be walking on her team to support her, raise awareness for MS and help raise money for a cure!

Here's where you come in. If you would like to help out, follow this link to donate online. Then, send me an email with your snail mail address so I can send you one of these hand stamped thank you cards.

For my card, I very carefully inked barbella from stamping bella with a palette noir black ink spot. I didn't want the barbells on my card, so for the parts that were too hard to ink with the spot, I used my black Stampin' Write Journaling marker from Stampin' Up! This marker is waterproof, so I didn't have to worry about it bleeding when I started to watercolor.

Barbella is water colored with an aquapainter and the Stampin' Up! watercolor wonder crayons. Then I went back with my Glaze Gelly Roll pens to add some shine and glitter. I am loving these! I finished the card with the perfect sentiment from A Muse and some red May Arts Cindy ribbon.

The card itself is a Fabriano Medioevalis folded card. I just bought a package of 100 from Dick Blick, so I am ready to make lots of thank you cards!

Stamps: Barbella by Stamping Bella, Sentiment by A Muse Rubber Art Stamps
Ink: Palette Hybrid Noir Black, Stampin' Write Black Journaling Marker
Card stock:
Fabriano Medioevalis folded card
Tools: Stardust Clear Gelly Roll Pen, White Glaze Gelly Roll Pen, Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aquapainter
