Give Thanks

I got this adorable stamp from Great Impressions the other day. Isn't it so cute? I used this card to fulfill two challenge requirements. One for the SCS sketch challenge and also for the Papertake Weekly Challenge, which was to make a fall theme card.

I started with a base of Papertrey Dark Chocolate that I stamped leaf images on with Versamark. I am not sure of the stamp manufacturer. I cut a strip of pattern paper and inked the edges. I used a ribbon punch to make slits for the ribbon and threaded the ribbon through the inside of the card and then tied it off with hemp thread.

I colored the image with copic markers. (Markers shown below.) I then used shimmer chalks to color the background. I also went over the pumpkin with orange chalk to add some shimmer.

I cut the image with rectangle nestibilities and then cut the mat as well. I adhered the image to my card base with mounting tape to give it dimension. I punched a circle, stamped the sentiment and the leaf, inked the edges and added a brad. I used a double layer of mounting tape to adhere the tag to my card.
Copics used B00, B23, YR31, YR23, E31, E33, E37, BG93, BG96, C1, 0

Supplies: Stamps-Harvest Mouse (GI), sentiment (Papertrey Limitless Labels), Thanksgiving (MSE), leaf stamps (unknown); Ink-Versamagic Aegean Blue, Tea leaves, Colorbox Chalk Chestnut Roan, Momento Tuxedo Black, Versamark; Paper-Papertrey White, Dk Chocolate, K & Co Fall Harvest Mat pad, Bazzill (green); Accessories-ribbon (Offray), shimmer chalks, brad, hemp thread, classic rectangle nestibilities
