A 'thank you' for thanksgiving


This is my design card for today's Sweet pea stampers challenge: thanksgiving. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in with the challenge which, as usual, will last for two weeks. After that the Sweet pea stampers will be taking a break and will be back in February 2015.

I used a Sweet Pea Stamp by Ching-chou kuik, although I can't remember the name of it and it seems to be retired now as I can't find it on the Sweet Pea Stamps website. I'd love to know if any of my visitors know what it's called. This was stamped on to a lightly coloured piece of card, sort of a cloudy look to it, and coloured with spectrum noir pens.

The background was created with Spectrum noir aqua tints using a mixture of autumnal colours, reds, orange and yellow, brushing and then spritzing with water. When dry I stamped twigs lots of times at different angles using stazon black with Rockin' Renaissance tattered textures stamp.
