It's Not All Black and White

Take a Peek

It's almost October 1st, which means it's almost time for another Storage Units, Ink and More release. Your sneak peeks start today with me and Lauren, and continue through Tuesday.

For this card, I used a few of the accessories from the Giving Thanks stamp set as my focal point. I think it's so fun how you can use the sets for very cute cards, or change it up a bit for a more sophisticated card. The stalks of wheat, corn, and gourd were all stamped on watercolor paper and colored with SU! markers and a water brush. I used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge for my layout. The papers are from Webster's Pages, and I added some color to the otherwise brown and white ones (the two on the right).

What's In It?
Stamps: Giving Thanks (SU Ink)
Paper: Webster's Pages coco collection, SU! chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, bordering blue, Strathmore watercolor paper
Ink: onyx black Versafine, SU! markers in so saffron, apricot appreal, pumpkin pie, garden green, bordering blue
Accessories: water brush, Michael's ribbon, slot punch, Swiss dot cuttlebug folder, circle and long scalloped rectangle nestabilities dies, dimensionals
