From the Vault — Thanksgiving Cards

Ahhhh, it’s Throwback Thursday, so I thought I’d look into the vault and see what’s hangin’ around. And hello … I found these Thanksgiving cards.

This was part of a series I made using Rit Dye and a Batik resist. I sponged Batik-EZ Resist Medium from Crafter’s Pick onto my stamp (Hero Arts), then stamped onto watercolor paper. I let the resist dry, then used a foam brush to paint on various shades of liquid Rit Dye. (You can find dying instructions on the Rit website. Here is a direct link to another card I made for Rit. The process is the same. Here’s another card. I also have some scrapbook pages on the site.)

This is VERY old! (Remember when eyelets were so hot?) I used mini gold and silver ink pads (you can see the small size in the imprint!) to stamp directly on the paper. The leaves image (Stampendous!) was black embossed then colored in with some shimmer paints.

And one more, using some Gelli Arts paper I made as a background:
