Grateful...

Here is another card that I have made. This was one I had received images from Yoorah. These are so cute and this was the first time I had ever used the prismacolor pencils and gamsol for blending. Took some time on how to exactly blend them, but I finally got the hang of it. I thought the colors depicted the Fall/Thanksgiving seaon. I must say that I am kind of proud of myself for trying out this technique. I did notice that it does take patience in blending and not over-saturating the paper or rubbing to hard to blend.


Stamps: Ellen Hutson Acorn and Fall Leaves, SU Noteworthy, Studio G for the word "Grateful"
Ink: SU Chocolate Brown
Prismacolor pencils: Cannot remember the color combo I used to achieve the color variation. Sorry
Spica Pen in Brown to give the additional glitz on top of accorn
Dew Drops: Golden yellow
Paper: Stardream Chocolate Brown, Bazzill Mocha for background and MM for the designer paper
Punches: Martha Stewart Scallop, Mega Scallop Punch for the white and accent piece behind it.
