Crafting For All Seasons Challenge #14 - Thanksgiving

Hello and how are you today?

Over at Crafting For All Seasons we are being sponsored by The Stamping Boutique and Bugaboo Stamps

The Stamping Boutique will be giving our lucky winner 3 digis or 1 digital paper pack of the winner's choice!  .... now doesn't that sound wonderful?

The theme for this challenge is Thanksgiving or if you like you could do the sketch or a Thankyou card.  Not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving .... here in Australia we don't ... but many of the images out there can easily be adapted for other things.

For this card I have used The Stamping Boutique's Audrey The Pilgrim.  I think this image would also make a lovely 'Christmas' themed card or even a Birthday or Thankyou card.

I have coloured her in the following Copic Markers :-
Dress - R14, R17       Apron, Hat, shoes - E40, E41, E43        Skin - E000, E00, E02
Hair - E35, E37          Plate - C1, C3         Pie - YR31

I used a piece of lace and carefully glued it down under the image ... it gave a lovely ruffled effect and looked different than a doily.  I love this lace .. I picked it up from the local op-shop.  

The second image I got to play with is was from Bugaboo stamps and it was ...... a ..... DRAGON!!!!  My favourite thing!  I thought these would make lovely Thankyou Cards ... It looks like the dragon is holding a gift behind it's back .... perhaps a bunch of flowers .....

 So here is Clyde in pink ......and blue ......

I have used very simple layouts once again as the colouring lost some of it's 'oomph' with background papers.  I can see that I will be using this image a lot!  It was very quick and easy to colour.

Don't forget to head on over to the Crafting For All Seasons Blog to check out the rest of the Design Team's sensational projects!  You will love the images they have used and what they have done with them.  Once you are all inspired then why don't you make your own Thanksgiving, Thankyou or Sketch project and enter the challenge ..... awesome prize up for grabs!
