My sentiments' piece features the stamp set "Always Thankful" from Stampin' Up. I used stains, colored pencils and distress markers and a blending pen in the creation. The natural fiber ribbon was stained and added for texture. I like the way the knot turned out to resemble a piece of barbwire. I plan to use my creation as a tag on a scrapbook page.

Striped paper is by S E I - Park Buddies
Brown paper is The Paper Company - Fudge Cover
Stamps - Stampin' Up - Always Thankful
Stains are all Tim Holtz Distress Inks:
   Vintage Photo, Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey
Distress Marker - Picket Fence - Tim Holtz
Archival Inks - Monarch Orange to stain ribbon, and Coffee for stamping
