Happy Thanksgiving {Purple Onion Designs}

There is definitely a touch of fall in the air here in Bama. September can be one of our really hot months so it's been a blessing to have some cooler days and nights associated with autumn. And since I am in a fall state of mind, today's card features a fall image illustrated for Purple Onion Designs by Stacey Yacula.

I created the background first using a combo of Peacock Feather Distress Oxide and Gathered Twigs Distress ink sponged onto Canson Arches water color card stock and then brushed with water. After cutting the background panel with a wonky stitched rectangle, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Occasions Sentiment set using wet cement ink. I stamped Ginger (raccoon with pumpkin) onto Copics X Press It cardstock, colored with Copic markers and then fussy cut out. I used some linen thread to tie a bow onto the pumpkin stem and attached the image to the background using foam tape.
