Give Thanks

The theme this week at Craft Your Passion is Edible Holidays.We have the fabulous Cedar Chest Designs and Limited Runs  as our sponsors.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used the wonderful Pumpkin Patch Sign Digital Stamp by Cedar Chest Designs and coloured it with Polychromos Pencils,using a blender pencil to soften the edges of the sky and grass.I’ve stamped a sentiment onto the sign as that comes blank on the original image.The truly lovely papers are the Mini Pumpkins Pattern Paper Set  also by Cedar Chest Designs and layered them up with some kraft and punched some on the edges with a Martha Stewart punch chosen for that country feel.Keeping with the rustic charm I made a  paper raffia rose (my first attempt!).

Supplies :

Image & Papers : Pumpkin Patch Sign Digital Stamp,Mini Pumpkins Pattern Paper Set both by Cedar Chest Designs 
Sentiment : Hero Arts Anytime Messages clear stamp set
Mediums : Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils,Derwent Blender Pencil,Sepia Archival Ink
Card : Papermania Kraftstax 8×8
Tools : X-Cut guillotine,Martha Stewart Embroidered Floral Edge Punch
