Stamp Something Challenge

Good morning! So it's time for another Stamp Something Challenge! This weeks theme is Thanksgiving or Thank you. I don't send out Thanksgiving cards, so I went with the Thank you.

I stamped the image in Palette black, and embossed it with clear EP to make sure the ink doesn't run. I think I need to get a different kind of ink to use with the copics. So I know my shading doesn't look so hot, but hopefully that will get better. I've been practicing like crazy with these things, so hopefully I'll get the hang of them soonwink.

-Stamps-Give Thanks and Artfully Asian
-Paper-Real Red and PTI white cardstock; Polka dots & Paisley DSP (retired)
-Ink-Palette Black, Close to Cocoa
-Accessories-Copic markers, clear EP, hemp twine, Styled Silver HPH.

Don't forget to head on over to the Stamp Something challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with mrgreen.

This is beautiful Emily and I'm so happy that you did a thank you card, me too. :) Love your layout and colors, great accent with the brad and the twine. Have fun with the copics, I got some in a kit and I don't like the colors. Hopefully I can get more for Christmas! :) I think you colored those apples perfectly!

I think this is great! I love the brown and yellow background. Nice work!

I like to use Adirondak's Pitch Black ink w/my Copics. I don't need to heat set it, and it has never smudged.

I think you did a wonderful job of coloring, Emily! Love your card, those apples and the terrific layout.

Your card is absolutely beautiful! As always! I only use Palette ink with my COPICS so I don't know why you'd be having a problem unless maybe it is the paper you are using. Nope, guess not because I use PTI white too. Hmmm...

Many Blessings,
