Give Thanks


Melissa Phillips shares her talents for creating beautiful backgrounds
with die cut stencil shapes.
Her attention to detail wins me every time.
And it's always delightful to learn her secrets!


Melissa used an ordinary paper towel to apply her inks to the 
die cut stencils. I did some of my background like she showed us,
and part with sponges.
Make It Market: Garden Gate provided the die cut stencil, and 
fall leaves for my background.
Friendship Jar: Fillers (smaller pumpkins)
Autumn Pumpkins (larger pumpkins), & sentiment 
All the pumpkins were die cut, stamped with Hero Arts Wet Cement,
then copic colored.


Also playing along with:

All those gorgeous velvet pumpkins!
Thank you for stopping by.
Hope your week is full of happy crafting!
