Cornucopia Wishes


Here in the United States, many families are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, so I wanted to share this Cornucopia of Thanksgiving Wishes with you today.  Did you know that Art Neko has Thanksgiving stamps?  You can find them HERE on this Thanksgiving Images stamp sheet (A333).  I stamped the beautiful cornucopia with Potting Soil Archival ink onto some hot press watercolor paper.  Then I pulled out some Derwent Inktense pencils and colored the cornucopia and fruits and vegetables and leaves.  I used a wet watercolor brush to blend the colors and smooth out the pencil strokes.

After all the coloring was done, I cut out the cornucopia with a circle die and adhered it to a larger dark brown circle.  I stamped the sentiment with the same Potting Soil Archival ink and trimmed it down to a narrow strip.  I found some small strips of this gorgeous Volcano Handmade Thai paper in my stash, and when I turned them over, the back side was full of these rich orange and brown and crimson hues.  I adhered these strips of Volcano Handmade Thai paper to a kraft card base.  The cornucopia was glued down over the Volcano strips, and then the sentiment was adhered with some foam tape.

For those of you who celebrate this holiday, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Have a wonderful day with your friends and family!

    What a great Thanksgiving card… lots to be thankful for in that cornucopia. The handmade paper is just the perfect colour to go with it, and adds a lovely dose of rich autumn colour.
