Nature's Harvest Thank You

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,
