Getting Cricky Design Team Post - Thankful

Happy Friday!! Another weekend is upon us, and another week where I have no idea where the days went...they are flying by!! It's my turn to post a design team project at Getting Cricky, and I have a Thanksgiving card to share with you.


For my Thankful card, I used a couple of different inking techniques. The base of the card is kraft stock, followed by Canvas Corp heavyweight white cardstock. Another piece of heavyweight white cardstock was cut with a Spellbinders Grand Rectangle. It was sprayed with Mister Huey's Color Mists in Overdue, Pumpkin Spice and Estate Green. It was then misted with water to merge the colors together, and then dried with a heat gun. Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist in Iridescent Gold was spritzed on next to give it a sparkly sheen. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


I tried to get a close-up of the Glimmer Mist shimmer. It is really pretty in person.


A Spellbinders Deckled Rectangle was cut from heavyweight white cardstock and then inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint while it was still in the die so that the edges stayed white. It was then misted with Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist in Peach Delight. The leaf is a Spellbinders Foliage die, inked with the same Distress Inks and spritzed with Glimmer Mist in Iridescent Gold. It was attached with foam tape for dimension. The burlap is from Joann Fabric, the twine and button from my stash. "Thankful" is from K Andrew Designs Fall-O-Ween stamp set. I just checked, and unfortunately this set is sold out, but there are still a few sets left that are on clearance at 60%...click HERE to get yours before they are gone forever!!

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, this is gorgeous! And it looks exactly like color-misted sugar cookies I recently saw! :o) You did a stellar job with the mists. I love that you used a deeper colored base so the beautiful leaf stands out gorgeously. The textiles beneath it are such marvelous accents. Burlap works so harmoniously with nature-themed projects. This thankful card will surely be treasured. :o) Another stunning creation, my dear Lisa! (Are you done being mad at me yet? Teehee!)

Hugs and blessings!

Hi Lisa, your work always has such a professional look. The inking and misting technique looks great and something I will now have to try. Your Card is beautiful. I'm having a great time with die cuts (Spellbinders and Hero Arts).
