Giving Thanks Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Giving Thanks.”

One of my good friends recently had a birthday and I decided to make her a decorative picture frame.

I purchased the picture frame at a local Home Goods store (love them!).

I created each of the elements using the Count My Blessings stamp set.

I stamped the flower, leaf, and acorn elements first in Archival Black ink on Watercolor Paper.  I then used Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive inks and an Aqua Painter to color them in.  I then fussy cut them each out using Paper Snips.

I wrapped around the picture frame some Crushed Curry Ribbon.  I then stamped the sentiment in Old Olive ink on the Watercolor Paper and then cut it out using the Stitched  Shapes  Framelits.  I adhered each of the elements using Tear & Tape adhesive.
