Flourishes September Release Day Two

Hello and welcome to my studio!

Today is the second day of Flourishes' September Release Hop. The hop starts here.

Of all of the sets I made for this release, Bushel of Thanks is my favorite. You see,

I love Autumn,
I was born on Thanksgiving,
I think every cheesecake should be pumpkin!

The coloring here was done with colored pencil and Zig Real Brush markers.
the fruit had been shined up with some diamond glaze.

It was so much fun building my farm wall with the Authentique "Nestled" paper pad.

Legacy DesignnernPaper

I cut the papers into random sized strips (not into measuring),  inked the edges and stacked them.
I fussy cut the images, leaving a tiny white border to help them stand out from the
background. The pumpkin and gourd are popped out.

I used one of Flourishes' exclusive dies to frame my sentiment. Leaving the die in place
made it easy to sponge some ink onto the tag...love doing that!

Twine and tiny brads finish off the card, which is built on a
