This is for today's HYCCT challenge to make a thank you card for a care giver. I decided to combine with another challenge and I thought of this stamp set right away when I saw the CAS sketch challenge. I stamped my bonsai tree in Stazon black onto Natural White cs then water colored my image with water color crayons and an Aqua pen adding some shading at the bottom and around the side. I used a marker to add a black edge to the image piece before popping it on dimensionals over the striped embossed area of my base. I had my stripes and image so far to the left (I can't figure out how to emboss in certain areas so have to always be at an edge) that I decided I needed to add a small hemp accent on the right. I loved this sentiment along with this image as it reminded me of the patience and care that goes along with showing kindness as a care-giver during a lengthy illness such as cancer.
