Guess what day it is??? Yes...it's time for another
And our optional theme is Fall Colors.
I decided to use a new Penny Black stamp called Filigree Foliage and make a Thanksgiving card.
Don't you just love that pumpkin in the middle? I saw Mona Pendleton make one of these on her blog and I just loved it! You die cut 3 ovals and paint, ink or stain them to your liking. I used Vintage Photo and Dried Marigold Distress inks to get the pumpkin color. I then painted the ovals with crackle paint and let it dry. Hopefully you can see this in the photo. I then adhere them together in the shape of a pumpkin!
Next, I used the Filigree Foliage stamps and stamped the beautiful leaves onto white watercolor paper with Black Archival Ink. I then painted them with lots of water and watercolors. I coated the leaves with Glossy Accents and set aside to dry.
Next I die cut some different leaves and inked them with Peeled Paint Distress inks and painted with crackle paint. After everything had dried I assembled my card!
I hope you will join our new Challenge!!!
