Thanksgiving Card - Thoroughly Thankful




Hey Everyone! Here's a card I made yesterday. I just realized that my sentiment is crooked. I will need to fix that.
I'm going to start working on Fall/Thanksgiving Cards and I think I'm done with Halloween. I don't have too many Thanksgiving stamp sets but I'll dig through my pile and see what I have.

Anyway. . .I colored the image using Prismacolor Pencils with Gamsol and colored the background with SU Watercolor Crayons. I wanted to "brighten" it up a little more so I applied Versamark all over the image and applied clear embossing powder and heat embossed it. This helped bring out the colors. Try it out and you'll see the difference.


Card Details:
Stamp Set: Throrougly Thankful
Ink: Prismacolor Pencils with Gamsol, Prismacolor Markers, SU Watercolor Crayons, Versamark

Oh! Maria, I love this!! I really need to get some good pencils-you use them very well. Too bad you can't get a small return on the things I buy because of your samples :o)

As always...I love it! You rock at watercoloring! I just can't get the hang of it, don't know why I suck at it so bad!
