Hello! Another quick and easy stamping challenge for today. I had a piece of Dylusion-ed paper on hand, so I stamped it with this new stamp (Magenta) and embossed it with black embossing powder. I highlighted the flower with a juicy light greenish yellow Tombow marker and some of the leaves with a green one. I matted it on black, then on an ATC sized green. I decided I didn't want to make an ATC, so I grabbed the other half of the sheet of card stock from last week and made a base. I stamped a gorgeous background stamp (JustRite) in Prussian Blue Colorbox Fluid Chalk on the base, masking off the lower portion. I really like the subtle velvety effect of the chalk ink for a background. It really does add a special touch. The accent strip is a charcoal metallic scrap off the pile. The finishing touches were a rub on (Stampin' Up) - why I have so much trouble getting them straight??? - some lettuce liquid pearls, and lime green stickles on the flowers' centres.
It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. I have so much to be thankful for. I try to be intentionally grateful every day for all the blessings in my life, and especially so at Thanksgiving. This season is so beautiful here - with glorious colours and glorious weather. We had a wonderful feast last night with family. Right at the moment I'm thankful for a couple of hours to myself to stamp and sew. My elder daughter and I got up early to go to the 8 o'clock church service, and I have come home and the rest of the family is off to the 10 o'clock service.
I hope you get some time to stamp this weekend too! Thanks for stopping by.
