Day of Gratitude

It has been a while since I've done a challenge at SplitCoast Stampers. The Friday Free for All Challenge was to create a "thank you" card. Seems very appropriate for this time of year. And Day of Gratitude seemed to me the perfect choice for the stamp set.

The large floral image in the center was inked using 3 different Stampin' Write Markers, Old Olive, More Mustard, and Cajun Craze. It took me a few minutes to color the entire image but, the ink never dried. After giving it a "huff" or two, the image came out crisp and clear. The background piece was created using a leaf image from Day of Gratitude as a mask and sponging around it with More Mustard ink.

Thanks for stopping by! The Simply Amazing Starter kit promotion has 11 more days left. It is a great way to try out all the benefits of a Stampin'Up! demonstratorship through March and receive $310 worth of Stampin'Up! stamps, inks, paper, and a lot more for only $87.50. Contact me if you have any questions, I'm here to help.!

God Bless,
