Pleasant Pheasants Thanksgiving card

Hi Friends,

When flipping through our Holiday Catalog, I fell in LOVE with the Thanksgiving card on page 44.

It’s the top left card- using the Merry Merlot card stock.

I think it’s so much fun to COLOR and that;s just what I did!

Using our Watercolor Pencils, it was fun –just like being back in kindergarten!

Then I gently used my Aqua Painter and with soft, one directional strokes, covered over the colored layers.

First I apologize for the poor image –I was in a hurry to get it posted for my Demonstrators–am a work in progress!

Directions:

I used Crumb Cake as the card base at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/2

      2.Then I took a piece of Pumpkin pIe at 5 x 3 /3/4 and ran it through the Big Shot using the new Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

      3.Then I took a Sponge Dauber and used Pumpkin Pie ink to distress the embossed layer.

      4.I did use Tear & Tape to adhere it to the base layer. I think with thicker embossing folders, extra adhesive is a great way to insure it sticks properly.

      5.Next I took the wagon stamp and message and used Stazon to stamp on a layer of Very Vanilla.

           THEN -for me the REAL FUN began!    COLORING!

      6.I used the WATERCOLOR PENCILS and colored away.

        NO fuss,  no worry, just easy broadstrokes over the images–kinda like an ombray effect.

      7.THEN I took my Aqua Painter and very gently and in one direction only, blended the colors a tad more.

      8.I made a tiny bow with the Braided Linen Thread and attached with a Glue Dot.

      9.This layer was attached to a piece of Crumb Cake. The edges were distressed using the blade of my Snips–just to give it a bit more dimension. Dimensionals were used to pop it on top of the textured piece.

These are the products I used to make it:

Then I colored him using the Stampin’ Blends and added a puff of cotton to his cap with a drop of Fine Tip Glue.

I also used a banner from the Festive Farmhouse DSP with a bit of gold thread in front of it .
