Autumn Thanks


Well, Thanksgiving is just around the corner for those of us that live in the United States, and it's time to start getting my Thanksgiving celebration cards made for family and friends. I had made this card some time ago for one of SCS's challenges, and thought I'd share it here tonight. I bought this stamp set made by Stampin' Up! many years ago. I think it's called Bushy Tailed Blessings (I have alot of my stamps out on shelves in my craft room, so I sometimes forget the names). Regardless, I didn't have very many Thanksgiving type of sets back then (and still don't - gasp!), and I remember that I was especially happy to get this one with these cute squirrels sharing their harvest. The background was stamped in Ruby Red and sponged on the edges of the base panel, and the plaid patterned paper was found from my huge scraps pile. The main image itself was watercolored with markers and aquapainter. The ribbon and brads were added to provide alittle bit of ooommph. Thanks for visiting today... till next time... :)

Stamps: Bushy Tailed Blessings, background acorn/leaves from 2000 SAB set (unknown name at this time)
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Vanilla, plaid DP (unknown source)
Ink: Ruby Red, black, various SU markers for coloring
Accessories: brads, ribbon, aquapainter, sponge dauber
Techniques: watercoloring
