It is Thursday and here in the US it is Thanksgiving. Today it is also the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge day. This week it is a color challenge.
Beautiful, rich colors perfect for this time of year.
I think the Nature's Harvest bundle is the Bundle I used the most from the July-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. The flowers were colored using Watercolor pencils and the cut using the coordinating Harvest dies. The Watercolor pencils Assortment 1 has both Rich Razzleberry and Early Espresso pencils, there is no pencil for the Cinnamon Cider since it is an In Color (2020-22).
The background was created using a Water Painter, ink refills (Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso, Cinnamon Cider) on watercolor paper. I diluted the ink refill with water and then brushed it on the watercolor paper. Once the paper was dry I did some splatters using Early Espresso ink diluted with water and the Water Painter.
The sentiment is from the Color & Contour set. It is a fun font and a perfect sentiment for today and well anytime.
The Very Vanilla twine was added to the panel once it was dry. Do you see those tiny butterflies? This is a little sneak peek of something that is coming in the J-J (January-June) 2022 Mini Catalog. They are the Brushed Brass Butterflies and you will be seeing them a lot. The butterflies come in 2 sizes-tiny and teeny tiny. I used both sizes on my card. The butterflies are pretty thin and flat which makes them easily mailable. Since they have a brushed finish they are not super shiny but add a subtle shine. I am a big fan and look forward to ordering more of them.
Happy Thanksgiving and I am grateful you stopped by,
