Give thanks

Just a very simple fall card. The funny thing was that I stamped the leaves first on the dark bottom panel but you absolutely can not see them in real life, so I went and stamped them again on the top panel to tie in my paper pieced leaf on the quote panel. Now in the photo, they show up so it may look a little busy...



I just adore this look of a quote that then has been stippled with color. I've seen it a lot lately and finally tried it myself. After all, I have quite a few wonderful quote/saying stamps from The Angel Company. I did it by leaving my nestabilities die in place and then swirled on two different colors of palette ink. Start first to the outside of the frame and then work your way inwards...repeating all around the edges. I left the center lighter and then came in with a bordeaux, lightly, at the end.

Card Materials: all stamps and papers from The Angel Company
Stamps: Ever so Thankful
Accessories: Penelope Soar with it Collection and cardstock, ribbon, button, scrappers floss, Nestabilities Label 4, palette ink, color dusters

Wishing you a super week ahead!
