With Thanksgiving around the corner, I'm popping in to just quickly share a card I created yesterday. I'll be entering this card into several different sites:
1. Simon Says Wednesday blog--the challenge was to make a "thanks" card.
2. Moxie Fab World--our card had to have tons of trees on it. The "tree-mendous challenge".
3. Word Art Wednesday--"anything goes".
Here's my card:
I stamped this image (Winter trees) in brown pigment ink and heat embossed it. Then, I masked off the ground portion so that the "horizon" would be easy to color in. I used my distress inks to make this sunset. I started off with some squeezed lemon. Then I used spiced marmalade and then dusty concord. For the ground, I used Wink of Stella to add some shine but the picture didn't pick that up. I also wanted to try to add some snow on the trees. I used the white picket distress marker and added touches of white to a few trees but it's hard to see here. I layered the image on cardstock that I distressed to match the sunset and then added some twine. Anyway, it was a fun image to play with! The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Remember your blessings as you sit with your friends and loved ones. I'm grateful to have a place to share my cards and I'm thankful for the kind messages left, too.
