Thanksgiving at Rainbow Lady's Challenge

Hi there well this week has flown by and its time for a new challenge from the lovely Rainbow Lady and this week Cynthia wants to see Thanksgiving stamps so I took the opportunity to ink up this beautiful little lady from Sweet Pea Stamps, she is called 'Autumn Harvest' by Ching Chou Kuik

I created the background by painting white card with starbust stains (Jazzy Jivin purple, don't you just love the names of the colours lol). I painted with a stiff bristly bursh to leave the mica in lines and create some texture. Once it was dry i stamped the clarity corner stamp and embossed with gold EP and matted the background on some gold mirri card.

The image is coloured with promarkers and she has sparkle EP on her wings. I've used the new Deluxe Crafters Card from Crafty Boots to stamp the image and this stuff is fab-u-lous! I'd been having a problem with flexmarkers bleeding but with this card  the colours blend beautifully but don't seem to bleed, its a great price too. I've layered her up over a couple of Marianne diecuts, covering the join with a ribbon. The sentiment is also from Sweet Pea stamps

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments: thank you or thanksgiving

Hooked on Crafts: die cuts/punches
In a Sweet pea dream:  a thankful project using fall colours

  1. she's a real stunner the way you have coloured her & I love the golden accenting & matting combined with the mauves - the orange pumpkins with the black & green had me just thinking about colour theory. Thanks for info to Crafty Boots card.
