Blessings For Which We Give Thanks

I’m playing along with two challenges. The One-Layer Simplicity: Gratitude challenge and the CASology: Give challenge.

I thought this sentiment was perfect for both challenges. The original sentiment stamp has the word thanksgiving in the same font as the other words (with “our” being on the same line as well). I wanted the word thanksgiving to stand out, so I cut apart the original sentiment, and stamped it with space for a larger, scripty word.

To give the foliage images some depth, I stamped them and then, without re-inking, stamped them again a little offset for a shadow effect. It looks good in person, but on screen it just looks blurry…ugh!

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. Karen, this is so beautiful! I love the way you set apart the word Thanksgiving, and the stamping off for a shadow on the flowers is a brilliant effect. Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

  2. I love the colour palette you used here, Karen, and the subtle shadows are gorgeous! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
