Hi everyone! I had hoped to post this yesterday but there was a bit going on around here…Tropical Storm Hanna dropped about six inches of rain, I had to take my daughter to a birthday party in the middle of it, my husband is painting our kitchen so it’s a BIG disaster, the kitchen faucet was leaking down beneath the cabinet and my son took a big spill on his bike (obviously after the storm). Sheesh. Anyway, all is well (except for my kitchen) so for that I am thankful.
Giving Thanks for You
This card uses Cornish Heritage Farms Stamp of the Month, Giving Thanks. The sentiment comes along with the image. I used some old markers to color the stamp, spritzed with water and stamped on the paper. I sponged the edges then used the Cracked Glass technique (which I love and don’t do often enough). I used three coats of ultra thick embossing powder, popped my piece into the freezer for about a minute, took it out, bent the paper and a bunch of the pieces flew right onto the floor. I didn’t want to restamp the whole thing so I just dabbed more Versamark onto the naked parts, added more UTEE, refroze and it worked fine.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ll come back tomorrow for the Monday Chicks Challenge! Have a great day!
