October SOTM Blog Hop – Thanks & Giving
I’m so inspired by this beautiful stamp set as it is a wonderful reminder to give thanks. I hope that you, too, will be inspired by all of the amazing artists along the Thanks & Giving blog hop. Remember that blog hops are a big, fun circle and that you can hop on at any point. If you are coming from Brenda Lapp’s blog, you are on the right track. If you ever get lost, you will find the complete list of participants on Melinda’s blog. Remember to give my fellow consultants some love along the way by leaving comments.
My Thanks & Giving Art
Did you know that CTMH has new Watercolor Pencils? You can use them with or without water. For this card, I colored directly on to Kraft paper. I used pairs of watercolor pencils to give the leaves some dimension. In addition to using the Stamp of the Month, I added the “for you” sentiment from the Just a Little Something (C1730) stamp set.
The stitched borders were added using a Thin Cut from the new Decorative Borders (Z4241) collection. I’m pretty sure it is my favorite product from the new Idea Book! I can’t stop using them…especially this stitched border.
So, here is a question for you…does this card seem complete? I debated with myself about adding sequins or bling, but I was going for a clean and simple look with the leaves as the star of the show. Once I added the white embossing, the leaves became a little muted and now I wonder. Let me know in the comments if you would add some bling or leave it as it is. While you are at it, let me know what you are thankful for at this very moment!
