Simon Says Monday 'Thanks/Thanksgiving' Challenge


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week the challenge is


Thanksgiving will soon be here, so this challenge is dedicated to being thankful for all of our families and our friends. We all need a good supply of Thank You/Thanksgiving cards but you might also like to make some Thanksgiving decorations and table settings, we will be looking forward to seeing your creations!

 This challenge will run for two weeks giving you a bit of extra time!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I am so lucky to have a lovely family and some fabulous friends. I made this for my Dad who makes sure that all the little feathered visitors to his garden are well fed. As soon as he opens the door the birds swoop down and follow him to the table, they must be waiting for him! 

I inked the background with Pumice Stone and Black Soot Distress Inks and then used a Dot Fade Stencil and some Stormy Sky Distress Ink to create the design.  For the bird I stamped the image onto Watercolor Paper and coloured with Vintage Photo and Fired Brick Inks. 

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
