I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you are spending it with loved ones and take a moment to be grateful for all that is good in life. In a world that is seemingly gone crazy it is easy to forget how much good there is all around us.
If you would like to recreate this look, here are some tips:
- The background is done with a clear block stamping technique seen here. However I've used three color of inks for added depth and misted the block prior to stamping for more depth.
- I've used a long retired skeleton leaf set, but our current Vintage Leaves Stamp Set has the same look and approximate size - and, better yet, it can be purchased bundled with Leaflets Framelits Dies so you don't have to cut out each leaf by hand!
- I've colored my stamps with a Multicolor Stamping Stampin' Write Markers Direct to Stamp Technique seen here, but you could also consider a Multicolor Stamping with Versamark Technique seen here.
- Crystal Effects adds sheen to my leaves - a technique I use often which can be seen here, here and here (along with many other past samples on my blog!)
Again, wishing you a festive and Happy Thanksgiving!
