This was actually alot of fun, took a little time with the watercoloring, but what a great finish! I started by stamping the fall flair images in stazon onto the naturals white (when you watercolor, you want to make sure you use a heavy enough paper or it will warp on you). I then, using my aqua painter picked up color from the lids of the summer sun, tangarine tango, and riding hood red stamp pads. Make sure you go from lightest to darkest and clean your brush in between :0). I then layered the white onto the tangarine tango, put stampin dimensionals on the back of the tangarine tango and mounted it onto the riding hood red card. I threaded some hemp twine through a small always artichoke button, tied a knot, frayed then ends of the twine, popped a glue dot on the back and attached it to the top layer. I stamped the Happy Thanksgiving Greeting in Stazon (because it was already out) on the front! Have fun recreating and have a great Thanksgiving!
