thank you cards

ok so computer is dead, but lucky the guy i sent it to, to try and fix it got all my files off it and one of the other guys he works with was selling a laptop a few models newer then my old one so i bought it from him and Jimmy put my files on it. So made thank you cards for them.

Had the paper from a magazine, thought it was perfect and thought i'd use the mr fix it forever friends stamp for the card for Jimmy, who tried to fix the laptop. so i basiclly put the paper on a card blank, stamped the image on to Letraset bleedproof paper.

Coloured in the image with promarkers. usual colours for the bear, Ivory, Blush and Vanilla. Henna for the belt and hammer.
Cool grey 4 for tools and screws.
Cool grey 1 for shadows.
Poppy for tool handles.
Carnary for mesuring tape.
Bright orange for envelope.
Then i stuck it to some card and ink the edges with Ink it up blue.

then i coloured in a peel off stickers in green and stuck them in the top corner, and stuck the image on with foam squares. i put blue dew drops in the conrers, three of each.

next i put the paper on the other card in a different way added a cardboard topper i got with another magazine, put thank you in the corner and doodle in blue around the card, i added silver gems the the edges.
