Thankful



Hello! I have a card to share with you today that I just made for fun and to play along with the 30 Day Coloring Challenge over at The Daily MarkerIt's been way too long since I've piddled with my stamps and dies, and I've missed it.

 I'm in a fall mood, even though it's been unusually warm here. I have my Scentsy going with pumpkin spice filling the air, and I'm pretending it's cool outside. 




This was made with an older die from Cottage Cutz. I have a lot of their dies and love them, but they are time consuming, although tons of fun!. I cut all of the pieces out of #110 white card stock and colored them with Copic markers. I did a tiny bit of shading, but not much.



After I colored them, I sponged a small amount of Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges and then I speckled them with white acrylic paint and more Vintage Photo.  For the background, I blended some Peacock Feathers Distress ink onto watercolor paper, speckled with water and then with some ore Peacock Feathers.


The Thankful die is from Penny Black. I cut three out and layered them together then added it on top of the die cuts with some liquid glue.  All of the dies were glued together with Tombow Mono Adhesive.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying your fall!

Hugs,

Kay :)
