A Thanksgiving Wish

I was happy to have the time to play with Mercy Kerin's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #42 today. Silke Ledlow of My Life is Mercy's guest muse this month. I love Silke's work. Here is the sketch:

I got a new set on Friday called "Thanksgiving" from Clear Art Stamps. I love the vintage style of these stamps and they are perfect for coloring. When I saw Mercy's Sketch today, I knew just which image I would use. I was off from work today and indulged myself with the time to do it. The images were a little challenging to color, but I am happy with the end result. Here are the materials I used:

Stamps: Clear Art Stamps~Thanksgiving.
Paper: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Soft Sage, Really Rust, Autumn Vine DSP, Solar White,
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, VersaFine Vintage Sepia
Accessories: Copics, Dimensionals, Sponge, 1/4" grosgrain ribbon-Mustard, Burgandy and Sage, Linen twine, Nestabilities, Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets, Crop-A-Dial.

Thanks for stopping by!
