Thanksgiving card

Hi there,

Today there is a new challenge over at the Scrapbook Stamp Society challenge blog. This time the theme is Thanksgiving/Fall.

For my project I’ve used Sherri Ann Baldy SCAN0002ThanksGivingMadeWithLove. You can find it by clicking the image title.

I had a big challenge when I coloured this image. My E18 ran out of ink just before I started on her hair, so I had to experiment with the hair colours before I found a nice replacement. I decided to go with the W markers. You’ll see the combination further down.

This stamp couldn’t be more perfect for the Thanksgiving theme. This is another American tradition we don’t do here in Denmark. However, we do have something pretty similar called “Mortens aften”, only we eat duck instead of turkey. 


I had much fun colouring her when I overcame the hair colour challenge, and I used the following Copic markers for the project:

Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, R20 and E04
Eyes: B18, B24 and B12
Hair: W7, W5 and W3
Turkey: E18 and E15
Leaf and berries: YG17, YG03 and BV13
Lettice: G17 and YG00
Dish: E43
Steam: B000 and R11
Nuts: E15 and E13
Leaves: YG17 and YG03
Blouse and Skirt: YR18, YR14, Y17, G99 and YG95
Apron: YG95
Socks: YG95, YR18 and Y17
Shoes: E18, E15 and E43

I have layered cardstock in autumn colours of brown, orange and green and have used big die cut leaves in similar colours. The sentiment is handwritten, which I think is quite obvious. 
To finish off the project, I put on two big bronze/orange pearls.

I hope you like my card. Feel free to leave a message to let me know. Please join my blog if you would like to see my projects on a regular basis.

Be Happy Crafting!
