Be Thankful

Hi everyone can you believe that it is the first of November. That means that here in the U.S. we will soon be celebrating Thanksgiving. I will be entering this card in two challenges where the theme is Thanks or Thanksgiving details will be at the end of this post in case you would like to enter into the fun.

I started by running the front of my card base through my embossing machine with a folder by Darice. Then I took my eBrush and using two different browns by Spectrum Noir airbrushed. Then I took my finger and pan chalks to color the embossed leaves. Then stamped directly with VersaMark ink and sprinkled clear Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel over the card and melted it creating water drops.

The leaf under the pumpkin was from my stash. The pumpkin is a Just For Fun Stamptangle image. After cutting out the pumpkin I colored with pencils my go to media lately for coloring.

The sentiment was printed and I cut it free form.

Challenges I'm entering this in:



Thank you for stopping by. I hope I've inspired you to make cards using the gratitude theme.

Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
