Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope all of you have a beautiful Thanksgiving day :o)

Even tho it's harder to see in a scan than irl, I wanted to show you this card I made using a Pastel Chalk pencil for the coloring. It looks very cool in person, like sketching. It needs to be sealed with a matte fixative of some sort or you will loose the individual stroke lines.

STAMPS: main image - from a retired Stampin' Up! set, sorry I don't know the name, for some reason I just have the one stamp, greeting - Paper Inspiration, leafy vine - PSX

INKS: Marvy Matchables #18 Dark Brown, Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie and True Thyme, Signo Uniball white gel pen

SUPPLIES: piercing tool, brayer, magic mesh, sponges, Tim Holtz distressing tool, gold brads, SU lg. corner punch, white gesso

TECHNIQUES: Painted Mesh - current Technique Junkies newsletter, Faux Stitching - April 2006 newsletter

NOTES: the green cardfront was distressed by running the brown pad over it repeatedly, starting at the edges ~ the corners were stamped with the main image, then sponged with the same ink around the edges

Thanks for stopping by!
