And this is what I came up with:
I started with a white card base and masked off the top part by using some torn paper. I then sponged various Distress Inks onto the bottom of the card. To tie the colors in together a bit more, I went over the whole lot with Vintage Photo then went back over with the original colors. I think that gave it a more cohesive look, considering I used everything from pink to green to rust to blue.
Once I was happy with that, I inked up the Papillon stamp with Picket Fence Distress Stain then stamped it over the masked piece. I let it dry naturally to give it more transparency.
The sentiment comes from two sets: The Big, the Bold and You for the "thanks" and Wet Paint for the smaller words.
