I'm so happy to be playing cards with the Color Hues challenge again - and they couldn't have made me happier by choosing these colors for #TCH #5! I had a wonderful surprise in the mail , from a very sweet friend - you tell me, serendipity?
This stunning stencil is one I've admired for a very long time from The Crafters Workshop. I've blended from the center of the bloom, starting with Catherine Pooler's Sand Castle - my closest match to kraft, then deepening it with DOX vintage photo, the a few Distress Oxide inks in the yellow family: Fossilized amber, scattered straw, and ending at the edges with squeezed lemonade.
Since I started with a piece of Bristol paper, it was a bit brighter than my eye liked. The fix? Over stamping with the Crackle Background from SSS in that sand castle ink.
MFT had the perfect sentiment, in my humble opinion... I do like to send a few Thanksgiving cards!
Okay, I'd better tuck this into the Color Hues gallery... hope to see you there!
