I have been taking it easy for about the past 10 days, after completing my last project for the Pazzles 2009 Design Team, but today I decided that I wanted to participate in the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge (SC248). If you would like to participate, you can find it here! I decided to make mine a Thanksgiving Card!
The multi-colored "punched leaves" were punched from a paper that I designed using "alcohol inks" and the copper looking ones were punched from a paper that I designed using a metallic paint. The black decorative elements on the left side were cut using my Pazzles "Inspiration Creative Cutter" and a cutting file from the Pazzles "Swirls & Twirls" CD. The center black "lacqured" panel was designed by me. I stamped the black CS using VersaMark and a couple of leaf stamps and then used my Perfect Pearls. I then VersaMarked the entire panel, covered with clear embossing power and heat set three times. Thanks for looking!!!
