Hi there! A warm welcome, especially to my newest followers. So glad you are all stopping by to take a quick peek at my newest card. I made this Thanksgiving card for the new Frilly and Funkie challenge. Rebecca is our hostess this fortnight and she wants us "to use this challenge to create a card or project that reflects the abundance of the harvest season and the gratitude we express during the beautiful holiday of Thanksgiving".
I went back one more time to the lovely Maja Design Walking in the Forest 12x12 collection for my background papers, distressing the edges with my fingernail, creating a few rips and then sponging the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink.
I hand dyed the lovely Venise lace, cut a tag with an old Spellbinders die from Walking in the Forest and stamped it with an equally as old Inkadinkado acrylic stamp. I used Potting Soil archival ink to stamp with as it is the best ink to use for stamping with acrylic stamp.
The flowers were cut with a combination of Mini Tattered Florals M&S dies as well as the Tattered Flowers decorative strip die from white card stock. They were colored with Dried Marigold distress stain and spritzed with Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold mist. The leaves were also cut from white card stock using the mini Tattered Leaves die, stamped with a Wendy Vecchi polka dot stamp using Orange Blossom archival ink and then spritzed with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls mist.
The seam binding was dyed with Dried Marigold reinker. The triple loop bow was topped with a burlap string bow and a button. The netting used to accent the flower was dyed with Faded Jeans distress stain.
These products used to make this card are available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, where Tim Holtz/Ranger products are always 20% below MSRP.
