Hello all!
It's time for another Friday challenge with  The Outlawz Alcohol Markers DT and this week, in preparation for the upcoming Holiday here in the USA, our theme is Thanksgiving or just general "Thanks" for those of you not participating in the holiday.
                I have to admit that we don't make a big fuss over Thanksgiving as we're a couple of transplanted English folk after all - we save the turkey until Christmas!  We do, however, enjoy the 4 day weekend that comes with the holiday and make a point of avoiding all retail outlets and having a relaxing time instead :)

       Anyway, enough of the cultural divide and on to this week's project.  I went for a tag this week as I thought it would come in useful for any last minute Thanksgiving gifts.  I used a digi from Dude Time Doodles and coloured the little scene with my trusty Copics.  The tag shape, scalloped frame, 'Thanks' word and the leaves were all cut with my Silhouette Cameo - I added colour to the leaves with Copics and then lightly spritzed them with water and crumples them to add texture.

   I would like to enter this into the challenges at Through the Craftroom DoorShelly's Images , Addicted to Stamps and More , Paper Pretties , and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

      Please go and take a look at the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT over at The Outlawz and thanks so much for popping in today!

Terrific tag, Dawn! Fun stamp and great coloring! Have a nice weekend!

Sandra said...

Excellent idea going with the tag! You did a fantastic colouring job on the image, it's so colourful and bright. Totally great idea crunching up the leaves to make them more real, that turned out girlies are really making it hard not to ask for a Cameo for Christmas. Enjoy the weekend, cheers :)Sandra

Love this tag Dawn! That image is so cute and fun. Someone who gets a nice bottle of wine or other spirits will love this tag on their gift.

Dawn, this is a darling tag! You colored your cute image beautifully! And I really love those fab leaves you made! (Why am I afraid to distress mine? I have no earthy idea--yours turned out great!)
We don't make a big dinner on Thanksgiving. I did at one time, but now like to go out to eat instead--no fuss, no muss! ;^)
Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Penny
