Happy Thanksgiving

Monday, October 14, 2013

It's our Thanksgiving today!

We celebrated with my mom and her boyfriend yesterday in Winnipeg. 
And tonight, we're going to my SIL's for supper.
So, two nights in a row without having to cook supper is definitely one of the many things I'm thankful for!

I wanted to share a fall card that I made.


I used some Echo Park patterned paper as my background. 
For the tree, I stamped my image in versa mark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Then, I pressed some ink onto my stamp press and with a paintbrush dipped in water, I coloured in my leaves. 
A little twine with some buttons finishes it off.

Thanks for looking!

Such a pretty card. So, when you paint on top of the embossing powder it stays and doesn't rub off?

Happy Thanksgiving, Leigh. You did a wonderful job with that tree. I remember that you used just as creatively it for other non-wedding cards in the past. Almost makes me want to buy that stamp set.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving. This is a fabulous card--I forgot all about this tree stamp. Super idea to water color those leaves.
