Thankful for You

Welcome back to My Favorite Things‘ October previews!  Today we’re sharing samples using a gorgeous new fall set, Thankful Leaves.

I had a lot of fun with this.  (No patterned paper! Gasp!)

The leaves and script were stamped onto Whip Cream cardstock using Amuse Fern, Papaya, Nutmeg and Currant inks.   Once that was complete, I used my Copic Airbrush System and a few Copics to fill in the cream areas and darken the edges.  The ribbon and hemp cord were dyed with Copics as well.

My sentiment was stamped in Ranger Walnut Stain Distress ink (also onto Whip Cream cardstock) with airbrushing added around the edges.

Base cardstock is Hot Fudge.

On the inside, I stamped more leaves and airbrushed again around the edges.
