H2H - Thankful

Welcome to this week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart! 

It's all about being thankful this week.

Thanksgiving in the US is way after our Thanksgiving holiday here in Canada. We celebrate the second Monday in October. However, it is ALWAYS appropriate to be thankful! 

I created the background for my card using 3 shades of Distress Oxide inks - Speckled Egg, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers. Those inks blend so well. I created circles of each colour on white cardstock and gradually blended them into each other. I then covered the inked cardstock with a stencil and inked over that using Black Soot ink. The last step was to brush Asteroid Stickles Glitter Gel over the black ink while the stencil was still in place. That took some time to dry. 

In the meantime, I die cut three leaves in the same colours as the inks (Mint, Glacier and Lagoon). The sentiment is from a retired stamp set but it was perfect for this challenge. That was die cut using a stitched rectangle die. Finally the leaves were added and a silver ribbon was tied in a double bow at the top. A few Silver Glitter Gems were added on each side of the sentiment and the card front was mounted on Charcoal cardstock. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret the thankful theme.

You have until the end of November to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!
