Thanksgiving Card

Designed by Doris Forbes

For some reason, I LOVE the font on the "Happy Thanksgiving" that's in this stamp set.  The cutesy kids I'm not so crazy about, but I love the font.  I've seen a couple of cards made with this set, and I keep staring at the words.

One of the more interesting techniques about this card is the grass under the pumpkins.  Doris stamped the grass with Garden Green and then again with Honey.  The blending of the two colors is nice...and makes the grass much more interesting.

Another way to make the grass two-toned would be to ink the stamp in the lighter (Honey) color and then use a sponge dauber to put some Garden Green on the stamp.

Have fun experimenting!
