Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop Day 3




Today's featured set is Thankful For You. I used the little girl image, colored in Copics and stamped the stalks in a mustard color. Sentiment is stamped in dark brown. Background was sponged on inks for field and sky. I drew some stripes in the gown with a fine lined ruby color marker.
My second project was a snap, our Thanksgiving placecards. This is a great little project to get all of the kids in on. The background stamping of the leaves (from Autumn Fun) was stamped on yellow cardstock in various ink colors. The label is a Sizzix die with the oval tag stamped with the wheat from this Thankful set and the sentiment was done in a dark orange and personalized with a matching marker. These measure 2 1/4" x 2 3/4" and are folded in half. On the inside we write either a blessing, prayer, or things we are thankful for.
