Thanksgiving Challenge

I have a lot to be thankful for this year. It has been a rough one and without the support of my family and friends, I am not sure it would have been manageable.

So, I have been making quite a few thank you cards lately to send to a few people to let them know how much they helped.

And since, the iCopic Weekly Challenge is to make a thank you or Thanksgiving card, I thought I would share this one …

My husband’s camera is out of commission for the moment, so I scanned this instead. The colors might be a little off, but I think you can see enough to get the idea.

I stamped Riley on X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Ink and then colored him in with Copic Sketch markers.

The papers I layered are from Reminisce, the ribbon is from American Crafts (stapled with the Tiny Attacher), cardstock from my scrap bag and brads from my stash. The card that I used is from DCWV.

Although you can’t see it very well, there is one great new technique I discovered. You can make a metallic looking gold color (like the buckle on Riley’s hat) by coloring with  Y28 and then going over it with at you Spica in clear. Very cool!!
